Read Shackleton, by Jonathan Shackleton online on Bookmate – A mesmerizing new biography of explorer Ernest Shackleton, lavishly illustrated with over a hundred photographs, maps and engravings, so. This book probes deep into family history to reveal the profound influence of Ernest Shackleton's Irish Quaker roots in the making of a great leader.

"By endurance we conquer."—Shackleton family mottoEighty years after Ernest Shackleton's death, his legend and the extraordinary story of the Endurance South Pole expedition still hold a grip on the public imagination.

Trapped in drifting polar pack-ice for ten months, Ernest Shackleton and his crew fought for survival against all the odds. When the Endurance was finally crushed, they were stranded on ice floes for more than a year before reaching Elephant Island. From there Shackleton; and five of his men embarked on the most remarkable rescue mission in maritime history, sailing in a small open boat to South Georgia Island across eight hundred miles of the world's roughest seas to bring help to the others.

Though he failed to reach the South Pole, Shackleton's story lives on because of his unique qualities of leadership and the extraordinary fact that all of his men survived. This compelling narrative probes the profound influence of Shackleton's Irish and Quaker roots in the making of a great leader. It offers a vivid portrait of a man at odds with the world and with himself, whose ambition was tempered by his flawed humanity and egalitarianism. Here too are the untold stories of Shackleton's upbringing in Kildare, his time in the Merchant Navy, his 1901 voyage on the Discovery with Robert Falcon Scott, his 1907 Nimrod expedition, his marriage and love affairs, his life as a public figure and politician, and the haunting story of his final, fatal expedition on the Quest.

Drawing on family records, diaries, and letters—and hitherto unpublished photographs and archive material—this mesmerizing book takes us beyond the myth to Shackleton; the man, for whom "optimism is true moral courage," and whose greatest triumph was that of life over death.

Shackleton: An Irishman in Antarctica is lavishly illustrated with more than a hundred photographs, maps, and engravings, some of them appearing in print for the first time.

Shackleton: An Irishman in Antarctica, copublished by the Lilliput Press in Dublin and the University of Wisconsin Press, presents Shackleton family history with a particular focus on the explorer.

I just had the wonderful experience of meeting the Books author ( Jonathan Shackleton). He was kind enough to share a lot of the family history which helped to bring the characters of the story to a more personal level.

Well written and worth the price. This book gave personal information on the explorer's life that is unavailable in the more swashbuckling books written about his explorations and achievements. It made the man himself more understandable.

I became interested in Shackleton after visiting Antartica. This is a good read. I learned a lot of details about him and his explorations that I had not seen elsewhere.

Extremely interesting what these explorers went through both physically and mentally. Never really thought about how their dreams could affect their families. Felt like I got to know Ernest Shackleton, the man.
Anaragelv
A beautiful, insightful book about a famed explorer, born in Ireland but educated in England. In British Empire times he was a British hero however has now become, 'An Irishman in Antarctica'.

I shared a recent expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula with Jonathon Shackelton and Falcon Scott on the Ocean Diamond. I was high bidder on this book during an auction on the expedition to benefit Antarctic preservation projects and Mr. Shackelton personalized and signed my book. It was a pleasure to talk to Jonathon Shackelton during the voyage and he presented extremely interesting historical lectures during the expedition on ship as well as during Antarctic landings at various locations, including historical sites. I highly recommend this book on Ernest Shackelton and his Antarctic explorations as it not only recounts the voyages of Sir Ernest Shackelton but also has the added perspective of a family member who covers the Shackelton family history and much insight into the man along with family photos, the family tree and very personal thoughts.

If Shackelton made it across the antartic as planned he probably would not be as well-known as he is today. The feat he and his crew managed to pull is simply astounding. One of the most inspiring adventure stories of all time in my opinion.
