Known for his even-handedness, never asking of his man anything that he would not do himself, courage and unwavering strength in the face of despair, Ernest Skackleton inspired incredible loyalty in those he led. One of history's great explorers, Ernest Shackleton pioneered the path to the South Pole over 100 years ago, becoming the dominant figure in Antarctic discovery. His incredible adventures on four expeditions to the Antarctic have captivated generations. But Shackleton was a flawed character whose chaotic private life, marked by romantic affairs, unfulfilled ambitions, and failed business ventures, contrasted with his celebrity status as the leading explorer.

A man driven was Ernest Shackleton. 'To Dream the Impossible Dream', would be a great theme song for the man. The book gives a detailed account of the in some ways simple and in other ways complex man... a man of great contradictions. Well worth reading is the biography.
