2014-17 marks the centenary of Ernest H. Shackleton's Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. The anniversary will be celebrated through a number of new expeditions, exhibitions, publications and documentaries. The Fram Museum will use the centenary to present a broader story of Shackleton, the much-admired Antarctic explorer, in a special exhibition at the museum and in this accompanying book. You can read about all of Shackleton's Antarctic expeditions, in addition to his personal life; his voyage on Discovery with Robert F. Scott and Edward Wilson, the succesful Nimrod Expedition, the Endurance Expedition and the often forgotten Ross Sea Party, and finally his death on Quest in 1922. The story of Shackleton's life is fully illustrated with more than 300 photos and maps from many of the Shackleton archives around the world.
