About this title
Twenty-eight man stood on a desolate Antarctic ice floe one thousand miles from the nearest human contact. In a few months the ice would melt. To survive they would have to be safely on land before that happened--if they did not starve first. The odds were stacked against them. They faced all the horrors that the Antarctic could bring to bear: numbing cold and the worst weather on the globe. They could freeze, starve, or drown.
They had a single advantage, however, one that proved decisive. They were led by Shackleton.
This book tells their tale and the story of the man who led them.
In Shackleton of the Antartic, T. H. Baughman, author of two previous books on Antartic exploration, produces in exciting detail the saga of what can justifiably be called the Greatest Adventure of All Times - the Endurance expedition -- and explains that endeavor in the context of Sir Ernest Shackleton's life.About the Author:
Dr. T. H. Baughman is Dean of the Liberal Arts College at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, Oklahoma. He is author of Before the Heroes Came: Antarctica in the 1890s (Nebraska 1993) and Pilgrims on the Ice: Robert Falcon Scott's First Antarctic Expedition (Nebraska 1999).
