Ernest Shackleton was obsessed by the Antarctic. He had written to his sister saying A?€ËsYou canA?€â„?t think what it is like to walk over places where no man has walked before.A?€â„? He was disappointed at his showing during ScottA?€â„?s Discovery ExpeditionA?€â€t­he had collapsed and spent much of the time as a passenger - and possibly felt that Scott had to a degree blamed him for the ultimate failure of the expedition.
He wanted to be first to the South Pole, partly for the glory but also because he felt he had to redeem himself after Scott sent him back on the relief ship in 1903, because of his A?€L“ill healthA?€Ât.
Raising the money for another expedition was fraught with difficulties but in 1907 he finally set sail, aboard the Nimrod. Here, gathered together for the first time, are 156 letters and telegrams exploring the inner thoughts of an heroic man with far-reaching dreams. His emotions are revealed through personal correspondence with Scott, Dr. Edward Wilson, Sir Clements Markham and many others. They give an insight not only into the mind and character of this great explorer but into the internal politics of the time.
