Shackleton by Jonathan Shackleton and John MacKenna


Eighty years after his death, the legend of Ernest Shackleton and the extraordinary story of the Endurance South Pole expedition still hold a compelling grip on the public imagination. Drawing on family records, diaries and letters- and hitherto unpublished photographs and archive material- this mesmerizing biography takes us beyond the myth to Shackleton the man, for whom "Optimism is true moral courage," and whose greatest triumph was that of life over death. "Shackleton: An Irishman in Antarctica," is lavishly illustrated with over a hundred photographs, maps and engravings, some of them appearing in print for the first time.
