Description du produit

Revue de presse

“Mr. Jarvis’s tribute to Ernest Shackleton’s Antarctic expedition has had a danger and heroism that are worthy of the original.” (The Guardian)

“This is a story of triumph! Tim Jarvis and his companions have successfully recreated my grandfather’s 1916 voyage over the stormiest seas in the world. I feel it was a thoroughly Shackletonian expedition.” (ALEXANDRA SHACKLETON, Granddaughter of Ernest Shackleton)

“A daring re-enactment. ... All the plaudits to him and his team are thoroughly deserved.” (Telegraph)

“An extraordinary expedition” (The Daily Mirror)

“Polar explorer Jarvis takes on the re-creation of one of the most difficult treks imaginable. … The story of their journey is bone-chilling and breathtakingly frightening. … a most remarkable feat. A well-written, compelling read.” (Kirkus)

“Thrilling. ... A treasure-trove of minutiae and derring-do for both explorers and those who will simply gaze in wonderment.” (Booklist)

“A chilling account of an epic struggle to survive.” (Traveler)

Présentation de l'éditeur

In this extraordinary adventure memoir and tie-in to the PBS documentary, Tim Jarvis, one of the world's leading explorers, describes his modern-day journey to retrace, for the first time ever—and in period clothing and gear—the legendary 1914 expedition of Sir Ernest Shackleton.

In early 1914, British explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton and his team sailed for Antarctica, attempting to be the first to reach the South Pole. Instead of glory, Shackleton and his crew found themselves in an epic struggle for survival: a three-year odyssey on the ice and oceans of the Antarctic that endures as one of the world’s most famous tales of adventure, endurance, and leadership ever recorded.

In the winter of 2013, celebrated explorer Tim Jarvis, a veteran of multiple polar expeditions, set out to recreate Sir Ernest Shackleton’s treacherous voyage over sea and mountain, outfitted solely with authentic equipment—clothing, boots, food, and tools—from Shackleton’s time, a feat that has never been successfully accomplished.

Shackleton's Epic is the remarkable record of Jarvis and his team’s epic journey. Beautifully designed and illustrated with dozens of photographs from the original voyage and its modern reenactment, it is a visual feast for readers and historians alike, and an essential new chapter in the story that has inspired adventurers across every continent for a century.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Long-time Shackleton fan 2 mars 2014
Par Jonathan A. Hayes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
"Chasing Shackleton" is the story of a modern re-creation of Shackleton's epic boat trip from Elephant Island to South Georgia and the subsequent trek over the South Georgia mountains to the Stromness whaling station. They tried to make it as realistic as possible, using equipment as close to Shackleton's as they could. The result is a gripping story. We watched the PBS show (which are available on DVD). This will give you an even greater appreciation of Shackleton's leadership skills and Frank Worsley's navigation skills (he must be classed as the greatest navigator of all time). Read this book!
4.0 étoiles sur 5 A very interesting story that kept me glad to return to the book each day 28 mai 2016
Par Diana L. Cohen Robinson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
A very interesting story that kept me glad to return to the book each day. These are brave men who undertook a sea voyage to replicate the harrowing Shackleton journey from Elephant Island to South Georgia of 100 years ago. Then three of them replicated Shackleton's treacherous climb over South Georgia to what was then Stromness Whaling Station to secure help for his stranded men. The story of raising financial support to do the trip, the strength of character required to stay focused on the goal over several years, the many difficulties building and shipping the Alexandra Shackleton, a close replica of the James Caird, to Elephant Island... is a compelling story. Not as harrowing by far as Shackleton's Endurance survival, but still a most interesting story for those like me who can't seem to read enough about Shackleton.

As a Shackleton history buff found this OK but not a book to save for future reference. More about the cost issues with the recreation.
