To cross Antarctica on foot in 1915, Shackleton needed two groups: his, to make the journey across, and another to land on the other side so as to leave supplies at various points for Shackletons party. Shackletons group was, however, wiped out, their ship crushed by ice in the Weddell Sea. The second partys ship, the </Aurora/>, was also destroyed along with the supplies while moored on the opposite side in McMurdo Sound. The resourceful second party, however, scavenged supplies from previous expeditions and made their journey, leaving as much as possible for Shackletons men. Three of their number perished along the 2000-mile, bonechilling, scurvy- stricken journey. Shackletons party was, of course, never found. Lacks notes and index. Bickels seven books include </Facing Starvation/> and </Mawsons Will/>. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
