Summary

An illustrated re-telling of Ernest Shackleton's landmark expedition crossing the Antarctic from one pole to the other.

In the last days of the Heroic Age of Exploration, Ernest Shackleton dreamed of crossing the frozen heart of Antarctica, a place of ferocious seas, uncharted mountains and bone-chilling cold.

But when his ship, the Endurance, became trapped in the deadly grip of the ice, Shackleton's dreams were shattered.
