The Shackleton VoyagesBook - 2002
Ernest Shackleton is best known for his Endurance expedition, but he took part in four Antarctic expeditions in all - with Scott on the Discovery (1902-4), his own Nimrod expedition (1907-9), the Endurance - Aurora expedition (1914-17) and his final journey in 1921. Roland Huntford looks at Shackleton the explorer and leader of men, the hero of his day who was knighted by King Edward VII. This is a story in words and pictures of rivalry, survival, comradeship and courage in the face of danger and hardship.
