The Quest Chronicle
The Shackleton Rowett (Quest) Expedition has long lain in the shadow of Shackleton’s other exploits and is only fleetingly mentioned in the biographies of Sir Ernest Shackleton. This account sets out the events that occurred before, during and after the voyage, told through the words of the protagonists with their letters, logs and diaries, many of which have not been previously published.
“No Shackleton library is complete without The Quest Chronicle.”
“The Quest Chronicle is a vitally important book.”
“Only once in an Antarctic moon does a book burst into the accepted narratives of the great exploration epics with sublime freshness.”
