An illustrated version of a timeless classic. My father and I read a children’s version of Shackleton’s story when I was still small. Since then, I’ve read his journals. I refer back to his original advertisement for the venture often.
“Men wanted for hazardous journey. Small wages. Bitter cold. Long months of complete darkness. Constant danger. Safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in case of success.” – Ernest Shackelton, 1914, from the archives of the Royal Geographic Society, London.
