The man behind the myth

October 4 2014

“The pallid twilight of daybreak hung over the still waters of King Edward Cove in the early hours of 5 January 1922. From shore, it was possible to glimpse the outlines of Quest, a small wooden ship anchored in the bay. On board Quest, as night gave way to day, Sir Ernest Shackleton succumbed to a massive heart attack and died. It was a passing which simultaneously marked the loss of the greatest British explorer of the age and the moment when the celebrated era of Antarctic exploration, which was epitomised by the exploits of Shackleton, came to an end.”
