Sir Ernest Shackleton

We wrap the week up with this picture of Sir Ernest Shackleton. He was the leader of the expedition we looked at this week to Antarctica, and it was his skill and courage that was able to lead the expedition back to safety even after disaster struck.


  1. Shackleton's book named 'South', available on Project Gutenberg. A worthwhile read. Also look up "The Worst Journey In the World, by Apsley-Cherry_Garard.
