About this title


This is the story of Shackleton's first polar expedition in solo charge, 1907-9. It is an account of his never-ending quest to reach the South Pole. Within ninety-seven miles of his goal, appalling weather forces him to abandon this expedition in a breathtaking race against time.

About the Author:

Now most famous for the Endurance expedition with its legendary boat journey, a story which even today remains one of the greatest feats of human endurance of all time, Shackleton remains amongst the greatest and most famous of all British explorers. Astonishingly enough, most of his expeditions were failures, yet his powers of leadership and charisma have elevated him to the ranks of the great. He is buried in South Georgia.
