SHACKLETON, Ernest. Shackleton’s Antarctica, ‘The Heart of the Antarctic’ & ‘South’. Introduced by Alexandra Shackleton


1 in stock

London: Folio Society, 2021. 8vo. Commemorating the centenary of Ernest Shackleton’s death, The Heart of the Antarctic and South – thrilling accounts of his greatest polar expeditions in his own words. Published together for the first time, Ernest Shackleton’s two polar memoirs are gripping accounts of adventure at the very limit of human endurance. The Heart of the Antarctic (1909) and South (1919) tell the story of the Nimrod and Endurance expeditions – both of which fell short of their goal, but saw Shackleton defy overwhelming odds to save his men from catastrophe and bring them home.
