Ernest Shackleton is best known for his ENDURANCE expedition, but he took part in four Antarctic expeditions in all - the DISCOVERY (1902-4), the NIMROD expedition (1907-9), the ENDURANCE-AURORA expedition (1914-17) and QUEST, his final journey in 1921.

Roland Huntford looks at Shackleton the explorer and leader of men, the hero of his day who was knighted by King Edward VII. This is a riveting story in words and pictures of rivalry, survival, comradeship and courage in the face of danger and hardship. Includes 100 photographs not published before, including Shackleton's own, and from personal archives in the UK, New Zealand & Australia.
