Shackleton of the Antarctic
by T. H. Baughman
- 115 PAGES
Popular lecturer and historian, Baughman captures the drama, glory and guts of Ernest Shackleton in this brief tale of great adventure. He opens the book, not on the ice floes of the Weddell Sea, but with young third officer Ernest Shackleton, the Anglo-Boer War, Discovery Expedition and the ambitions of the famously accomplished leader. He ends with Raymond Priestly's oft-repeated quote: For scientific leadership, give me Scott; for swift and efficient travel, give me Amundsen; but if you are in a hopeless situation and there appears to be no way out, get down on your knees and pray for Shackleton.
