ReQuest2021 Online Advent Calendar – Day 19

‘South’, Shackleton’s account of the ‘Endurance’ expedition, was published in 1919 in London by William Heinemann.

In the preface, Shackleton wrote “… I think that though failure in the actual accomplishment must be recorded, there are chapters in this book of high adventure, strenuous days, lonely nights, unique experiences, and above all, records of unflinching determination, supreme loyalty and generous self-sacrifice on the part of my men which … still will be of interest to readers who now turn gladly from the red horror of war … to read … the tale of the White Warfare of the South.”
