Shackleton’s Epic: Recreating the World’s Greatest Journey of Survival (paperback)

Paperback Version. (HarperCollins UK and Australia, 2013)


In this extraordinary adventure memoir, Tim Jarvis describes his modern-day journey to retrace, for the first time ever, the legendary 1916 survival journey of Sir Ernest Shackleton – sailing a replica James Caird boat 1500kms across the Southern Ocean from Elephant Island, Antarctica to South Georgia and climbing over South Georgia’s mountainous interior using the same rudimentary equipment, period clothing and technology as Shackleton. The original journey was described by Sir Edmund Hillary as “the greatest survival journey of all time”.
