The Shackleton's Boat Journey

The Shackleton's Boat Journey Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written by the Captain of the Endurance, the ship used by Shackleton on his 1914-16 ill-fated journey, this book is a remarkable tale of courage and bravery in the face of extreme odds and a vivid portrait of one of the world's greatest explorers.

Synopsis:

This is an account of the Shackleton boat journey. The journey began in August 1914 in London and the next the world knew of Shackleton was in May 1916, when three ragged men staggered into the whaling station at Grytviken on South Georgia.

About the Author

Frank A. Worsley, a native New Zealander, served as a reserve officer in the Royal Navy before becoming captain of the Endurance. He commanded two ships in World War I, for which he was decorated, sailed with Shackleton again in 1921, and in 1925 was the joint leader of the British Arctic Exploration. Worsley died in 1943.
