About this book
Worsley describes how he led a team of men in 2008 on a recreation of Shackleton's 1908 expedition to the Antarctic. Worsley and many of the team are direct descendents of those who undertook the original mission. This book explores the history of that journey and recounts the experiences of the new one.
On the 29th of October 1908, a party of four men, led by Ernest Shackleton, set out to be the first to reach the South Pole. This book explores the history of the original expedition and reasons behind its failure, while capturing the meticulous planning, fundraising and training for the expedition.
