Read full description of the books:
”Men go out into the void spaces of the world for various reasons,” Sir Ernest Shackleton declared.
Is the quote above enough rationalization for the enduring quest of Shackleton for polar exploration? Perhaps not for this woman who deplores the cold and thinks ice is only useful in a drink on a 90-degree day.
Shackleton’s first venture to the Antarctic interior left he and his men trapped for almost a year and rocketed him to heroism. This story has been captured on paper in many fine books about the Endurance. For all that went wrong in that journey, this second little known outing was even worse, ill planned and seemingly doomed to fail from the start.
”This is hell.” to say the least, not only for the men of The Ross Party who were charged with establishing supply depots for the dogs that were to pull their sleds. It’s amazing anyone lives (three men died) which attests to the strong spirit of these men to survive.
A book group pick, I’m glad we read it, as I might not have picked it up on my own. One voyage to this region, that of the Endurance, might have been enough for me.
