Nimrod: Ernest Shackleton and the Extraordinary Story of the 1907-09 British Antarctic Expedition

by

On New Year's Day 1908, the ship "Nimrod "set off for the mysterious regions of the Antarctic. The leader of the small expedition was Ernest Shackleton, who in the next 15 months would record some of the greatest achievements of his career and return home as a hero. Shackleton and his party battled against extreme cold, hunger, danger, and psychological trauma in their attempt to reach the South Pole and return alive. They climbed the active volcano of Mount Erebus, planted the Union Jack at the previously unattained South Magnetic Pole, and struggled to within 97 miles of the South Geographic Pole. This is the definitive account of what Shackleton grandly called the British Antarctic Expedition. The story features an extraordinary cast of characters including Scott; Douglas Mawson, who would become one of the greatest Antarctic explorers; and the Antarctic pioneers Nansen and Amundsen.
