In 1914 Earnest Shackleton and a party of 27 men set sail from London in the hope of being the first to cross the antarctic continent from coast to coast. When their ship was arrested and crushed by the ice, and with supplies running low, this book and accompanying symphony tell the tale of how Shackleton led his entire crew to safety after more than 10 months stranded on the ice.
This explorerʼs edition combines the most comprehensive collection of Frank Hurley original expedition photography with a new orchestral score by composer Paul Frith recorded by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, together, these two books and four vinyl records recount one of the most amazing tales of human survival ever told.
