Customer Review

on 29 May 2016
This is a wonderfully illustrated book that takes you on a journey back in time to an age when men were made of iron and sailed in little wooden boats. Sir Ernest Shackleton's great escape from Antarctica captured in a 93 beautifully caricatured pages: the greatest journey of polar survival, the daring exploits of 28 men, an inspiring tale of men facing adversity against unimaginable odd...what makes it even more amazing is that it is based on true events! Seldom do you come across a story which can paint a thousand words, seldom do you encounter such camaraderie, the kind of story which makes you realize how small we are in comparison to the vastness of nature! This book recounts a story about endurance, duty, loyalty, optimism, resilience and heroism. Shackleton and his men forced nature to bend to their will, the most powerful kind of will, that of survival. David Butler is an exceptionally talented illustrator and I can't wait to see what he will produce next? Lawrence of Arabia? Mutiny on the Bounty? George Mallory & Everest?
