Wilf Woods | Shackleton’s ‘lost men’

Among the heroes of exploration is Ernest Shackleton, whose ship was crushed before he reached Antarctica in 1914. But he took a small boat across the stormy Antarctic seas, rescuing every one of his crew.

His shore party, whose goal was to bring a series of depots across the continent, had a different story, one that I had not realized until reading a book about them. “The Lost Men” is the title by Kelly Tyler-Lewis.
