Shackleton by Ranulph Fiennes – Our Review


Our Review…

Biographical books and documentaries on the life of Sir Ernest Shackleton are not uncommon however rarely are they written from such a perspective that fellow polar explorer Ranulph Fiennes can produce.

Fiennes is an excellent story teller, which Shackleton was famous for, and this kindred spirit has produced a highly readable book that retells the Shackleton story with a realistic and engaging narrative. For those who have a fascination for the great exploration era of the early 20th century, this is a great refresher that highlights the many struggles and flaws, and ultimate triumphs of the enigmatic Ernest Shackleton and his contemporaries from an age that will never be seen again.
