In the winter of 2013, Jarvis, a veteran of multiple polar expeditions, set out to recreate Sir Ernest Shackleton’s treacherous voyage from Elephant Island to South Georgia, over sea and mountain, outfitted solely with authentic equipment — clothing, boots, food, and tools — from Shackleton’s time, a feat that has never been successfully accomplished. This is the remarkable record of Jarvis and his team’s epic journey. Beautifully designed and illustrated with dozens of photographs from the original voyage and its modern reenactment, it is a visual feast for readers and historians alike, and an essential new chapter in the story that has inspired adventurers across every continent for a century. This was published in the UK as ‘Shackleton’s Epic’.
