Shackleton's Boat, Paperback / softback Book

Shackleton's Boat Paperback / softback


The James Caird is an unlikely hero, a 23-foot lifeboat that completed the most desperate and celebrated open boat voyage in history.

On board were Ernest Shackleton, Tom Crean and Frank Worsley, now some of the most recognised names in Antarctic and Polar literature/history.

This is the story of that little boat from its commissioning by Worsley to its dramatic escape from Antarctica to its final resting place at Dulwich College in the UK.

Shackleton's Boat is a worthy memorial to a vessel famous in maritime history, and a story whose heroism has inspired generations. * Similar to: 'Tom Crean - An Unsung Hero', 'Captain Francis Crozier - Last Man Standing?' and 'Seek the Frozen Lands'
