Publisher's Description

One hundred years after Ernest Shackleton set out on his ill-fated attempt to make the first crossing of Antarctica, this beautifully illustrated book celebrates those who succeeded where he had failed.

Awe-inspiring landscapes, candid portraits and action shots evoke the day-by-day moments as the expedition travelled across snow and ice, facing extraordinary challenges and dangers.

An impressive array of polar experts and explorers also add their reflections on Antarctica, and the meaning and art of true exploration. They include Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Peter Fuchs, Jonathan Shackleton, Børge Ousland, Sebastian Copeland, Ken Blaiklock, Felicity Aston and Paul Dalrymple.
