Mrs Chippy's Last Expedition The Remarkable Journal of Shackleton's Polar Bound CatThe carpenter has a very fine cat who is known as Mrs Chippie from the diary of Commander F A Worsley captain of Shackleton's Endurance When Sir Ernest Shackleton's ship Endurance became trapped in the Antarctic ice all twent When Ernest Shackleton sailed his ship Endurance to the Antarctic there was on board than merely men stores and a dream There was Mrs Chippy actually a male cat Mrs Chippy’s Last Expedition is a feline level view of that unfortunate journey at least the first less horrifying part And it is charming Our family is fond of cats We share our home with five at present among which is Madison I often refer to her as my four legged wife as opposed to my two legged variety and of course my eight legged ex as she spends most of my sleeping time curled up against me The others have very distinct personalities of their own but they are all loved and appreciated So we look kindly on things cat ish Thus the appeal of Mrs Chippy We get to see many members of the crew through his eyes as the book is set up as Chippy’s memoir complete with footnotes The author captures the timbre of an alpha feline Having once had one who functioned as a union rep for the household cat population I know what that looks like There is a combination of arrogance curiosity playfulness love and an abiding appreciation for food to such creatures and it has been captured uite well here But Chippy is merely the ploy The real story is in the details of life aboard one of the most famous of all nautical voyages One learns about the ship’s routine what tasks needed to be done a little of the personalities of the crew and some detail on the on board experience during the time the ship was stranded in the middle of an Antarctic ice field The author offers a fair bit of humor as well best expressed when Chippy is commenting on how awful the sled dogs can be and in how he goes out of his way to torment them This is not compelling reading by any stretch but is informative and entertaining My only gripe is that the story ends too soon The great drama of this expedition was Shackleton’s heroic effort to sail north in a small boat to get help for the left behind no not in a rapture way crew I would have liked Chippy’s view there either with Shackleton or with those stranded at the bottom of the world
