Detailed Product Description
New York/Toronto, Farrar & Rinehart, 1936, 1st American edition. 372 pp, many b/w photos, foldout map in rear. Gray cloth hardcover with blue titles, chipped dust jacket and cracked rear hinge. Very Good. 

The author, Edward Shackleton, was Sir Ernest's son. The British expedition was composed of Oxford University students with a Leader and a Sergeant of the RCMP. They spent the winter of 1934/5 in Northern Greenland and then split into three groups to explore further, one group discovering a new range of mountains. The ambitious endeavor resulted in exploration of Grant Land and northern Ellesmere Island; a fascinating voyage to North Greenland, and an unplanned wintering at Etah due to ice barriers in the Smith Sound route. Fascinating topics include the sledge trip, hunting, dog driving, Eskimos, and biological collecting in the Etah region. 

One of the great explorers who caused this period to be called the Heroic Age of Exploration. The Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration was an era in the exploration of the continent of Antarctica which began at the end of the 19th century, and ended after the First World War; the ShackletonRowett Expedition of 19211922 is often cited by historians as the dividing line between the "Heroic" and "Mechanical" ages. During this period the South Pole was first reached, and much of the continent's coastline was discovered and mapped, and significant areas of its interior were explored.
