The Escape

This picture shows members of the Shackleton Expedition trying to escape Antarctica in a life boat. Believe it or not, they did make it. They did eventually reach Elephant Island, and then an inhabited island over 700 miles away. That is pretty miraculous that they did not just die on the ice in Antarctica.


  1. I believe Ernest Shackleton's leadership had a lot to do with their survival.

  2. I agree. He was an exceptional leader.

  3. The expedition clearly had a superb photographer, too.
