The extraordinary story of Ernest Shackleton’s expedition to Antarctica in 1914
Tony Horitz brings to vivid, chilling life the awe-inspiring endurance displayed by Shackleton and his crew on their 2 year voyage to Antarctica and celebrates human capacity for survival against the odds. Drawing on Shackleton’s autobiography and the superb photographs of Frank Hurley, this adventure yarn includes attacks by vicious leopard seals, sailing a life-boat in stormy seas, gruesome descriptions of unappetising blubbery food, climbing a mountain with just a carpenter’s adze and the constant battle with the freezing wind and ice.
The audience doesn’t only listen – they join in with thrilling husky-racing on ice and joke-telling around the stove, to pass the long winter nights trapped in the ice.
