Hammond Innes-a collection

£24.99

Product description

Ralph Hammond Innes (15 July 1913 – 10 June 1998) was a British novelist who wrote over 30 novels, as well as children's and travel books.

Unusually for the thriller genre, Innes' protagonists were often not "heroes" in the typical sense, but ordinary men suddenly thrust into extreme situations by circumstance. Often, this involved being placed in a hostile environment (the Arctic, the open sea, deserts), or unwittingly becoming involved in a larger conflict or conspiracy. The protagonist generally is forced to rely on his own wits and making best use of limited resources, rather than the weapons and gadgetry commonly used by thriller writers.

This is collection of some of his best novels published as part of a set in 1976 with illustrations by Robin Harris. The novels are

· Wreckers Must Breathe (also published in the U.S. as Trapped) (1940)
· Attack Alarm (1941)
· Dead and Alive (1946)
· Killer Mine (1947)
· The Lonely Skier (also published in the U.S. as Fire in the Snow) (1947)
· The Blue Ice (1948)
· Maddon’s Rock (also published in the U.S. as Gale Warning) (1948)
· The White South (also published in the U.S. as The Survivors) (1949)
· The Angry Mountain (1950)
· Air Bridge (1951)
· Campbell’s Kingdom (1952)
· The Strange Land (also published in the U.S. as The Naked Land) (1954)
· The Wreck of the Mary Deare (1956)
