Beautifully illustrated picture book that retells Shackleton’s epic and harrowing expedition in Antarctica.
Ernest Shackleton. With a name like that, how couldn’t you do something truly heroic? Yes, Shackleton wanted to be the first person to cross the abandoned continent, Antarctica, which is roughly the same width as the United States. On August 8th, 1914, Shackleton set off with his crew of 27 men, 69 dogs, and 1 hearty ship called Endurance, whose name would come to define the expedition. They entered the icy sea surrounding Antarctica, and then, disaster struck. Shackleton’s Journey retells the story of the men’s desperate, nearly two-year fight for survival in the South Pole under the masterful leadership of Shackleton.
