THE LOST MEN The Harrowing Saga of Shackleton's Ross Sea Party

by | Read by Graeme Malcolm

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

Everyone knows the story of Shackleton's failed Antarctic trek and his heroic efforts to save his men. But how many know about the Ross sea party on the other side of the continent, charged with delivering food supplies for Shackleton? They too were left stranded for two years after their ship was ripped from its moorings and swept away. Despite abandonment, the party made one of the longest continuous land journeys in the history of Antarctic exploration, sledging a record 1700 miles to lay the depots. Graeme Malcolm's graceful reading is empathetic and evocative. He uses his British accent to depict various social classes in the diary entries; however, Australians prove a bit of a challenge.
