      Think Jacques Cousteau meets ER s Mark Green meets Lewis Carroll, and you begin to have an idea of who Hugh Montgomery is THE VOYAGE OF THE ARCTIC TERN may be his first book, but it is just the latest chapter in a life every bit as eventful and exciting as his storytelling THE VOYAGE OF THE ARCTIC TERN, Hugh Montgomery s remarkable epic adventure in verse, had its beginnings just before Christmas 1993 when the author, a consultant in intensive care at University College London, set out to write an original story for his godchildren as a present Three years later, after furious bouts of writing in the middle of the night between patients and experiments, THE VOYAGE OF THE ARCTIC TERN was complete but the voyage of the manuscript would prove somewhat rocky Undaunted by twenty eight rejection slips from as many publishers, Hugh Montgomery finally decided to self publish his book, postponing his wedding, remortgaging his apartment, and depleting his life s savings in the process Miraculously, the effort paid off THE VOYAGE OF THE ARCTIC TERN sold all 2,000 copies and was named both Self published Book of the Year and Poetry Book of the Year in England This has been a labor of love Or madness, depending on which way you see it, says the author of THE VOYAGE OF THE ARCTIC TERN, which has since been republished in a beautiful illustrated edition by Candlewick Press.What drives such passion For one thing, Hugh Montgomery has always had a fervent love of the sea Perhaps I inherited this from my grandfather, a ship s captain, he suggests Or perhaps it came from being raised on England s south coast My love of the ocean was greatly enhanced when, as a child, we could avoid a bath if we had been swimming that day I think I first washed when I was twenty seven Youthful snorkeling gave way to commercial diving, which led to excavations of key nautical archaeological sites, including Henry VIII s flagship, the MARY ROSE On one such expedition, Hugh Montgomery met a real modern day pirate, Bruno, who plundered wrecks from his ship, THE ARCTIC TERN In the author s swashbuckling tale, he immortalizes that living character in the guise of an ageless, redemption seeking protagonist.Still, even the most inspired first time author requires an adventurous spirit, and Hugh Montgomery has been able to supply that in spades Consider his leisure pastimes sky diving, serious mountain climbing he once was nearly killed in an avalanche in the Himalayas , long distance running, and securing the world record for playing the piano underwater he did it for charity Hugh Montgomery s medical research holds its share of superlatives as well in 1998, he and his team discovered the fitness gene and made international headlines for their achievement.The son of a pediatrician and a pediatric nurse, Hugh Montgomery says that he learned early on that life has much to offer and so little time to enjoy it Work on an intensive care unit brings home just how short life can be The author, doctor, and adventurer currently lives in London, England, with his tolerant and supportive wife.

    1. Read as a child and recently I remembered the title and got hold of a copy. As lovely as I remembered, full of dreamy illustrations and a sweet little storyline.


    2. The story was very simple, and in my mind would have been better as exposition for a story that explored the fantastical elements if it. Most of it was back story told to the main character anyway. I would have liked to know more about the mountainmen. The illustrations were lovely though.
