In Shackleton's Footsteps

by Robert C. Michael

 

 We'll revisit many of the spectacular and remote places which saw Sir Ernest Shackleton's heroic (and successful!) attempt to save the lives of his men a century ago. Among other sights, we'll walk on the ice of the Weddell Sea, where his ship became icebound and destroyed; Elephant Island, where he left his men and took off in a lifeboat to sail 800 stormy miles to impossibly awesome South Georgia Island; and check out the Antarctic Peninsula.
