FREE READ Shackleton FREE READ Shackleton 107 Of the last great Edwardian heroes Ernest Shackleton from his Anglo Irish childhood t. Ernest Shackleton was one tough SOB His life and specifically his explorations on the ice are nothing short of inspiring and humbling All the words one would associate with a great explorer facing desperate situations in an extremely harsh environment apply to him well maybe except prepared The book does a nice job discussing a lot of the side characters that were important to Wild for example This is also a great example of how a great leader can inspire people to do things they might not have been able to do on their ownThe book itself is OK I really didn t like the authors over use of uotes and diary entries almost felt like I was reading two books a the same time At times the uotes were indeed necessary for describing the direness of the situation on the ice At other times they were just boring Even so a well researched book and the author deserves credit for his hard work
