Shackleton's descendants take on the expedition that beat him in the most extreme Antarctic challenge known to man.
Henry Worsley is descended from Frank Worsley, the skipper on Shackleton's ship The Endurance. He is a Lieutenant Colonel with The Rifles in the British Army. In 2007 he helped set up The Shackleton Foundation which aims to support people who embody the leadership style and spirit of Ernest Shackleton. www.shackletonfoundation.org ww.shackletoncentenary.org
"An honest, gripping and intensely personal account of one man's quest to tackle the coldest, toughest, most desolate journey on earth. Henry is a man moulded in Shackleton's image and courage and spirit oozes from these pages." -- Bear Grylls
