At sixteen, Irishman Ernest Shackleton left school, joined the navy and became a legendary explorer. His extraordinary adventures in the Antarctic have thrilled generations. Here, for the first time, a best-selling author on Polar exploration writes about Shackleton s gripping exploits especially for children.

This inspiring story of Shackleton, whose men called him The Boss , involves four expeditions to the snow and ice of Antarctica over 20 years between 1901 and 1922.

His adventures included a breathtaking march to within a few miles of the South Pole and the amazing saga of survival on the famous Endurance expedition.
