Probably the best book I’ve read in a long, long time.
The story of Shackleton’s Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition is incredible in itself, and this book takes it further with its simple but gripping style.
It’s not just about expeditions and endurance - it’s about camaraderie and leadership too.
I could not put it down and cannot recommend it enough.
The two-part BBC series called Shackleton (two movies really) is also well worth watching.
