Ernest Shackleton was one of the last great Antarctic explorers, and he led one of the most ambitious Antarctic expeditions ever undertaken. In this graphic biography, Nick Bertozzi tells his story and the story of the dozens of men who threw in their lot with him—many of whom nearly died in the unimaginably harsh conditions of the journey. It's an astonishing feat—and was unprecedented at the time—that all the men in the expedition survived.
In Shackleton, Bertozzi has documented this remarkable journey with such wit and fiendish attention to detail that it's impossible not to get caught up in the drama of the voyage. Shackleton is a phenomenal accompaniment to Bertozzi's earlier graphic novel about great explorers, Lewis & Clark
The harrowing and heroic quest of Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackleton, from New York Times bestselling author Nick Bertozzi.
