Here, gathered together for the first time, are 165 letters and telegrams exploring the inner workings of an heroic man with far-reaching dreams. Shackleton’s emotions are revealed through personal correspondence with Scott, Wilson, Markham and others during the planning of the British Antarctic Expedition (1907-1909). It was during this expedition that he established a new ‘furthest south’ coming within 97 miles of the pole. A wonderful work produced for the expedition centenary.
