Captain Mackintosh and his party left the Aurora' on the evening of January 25. They had nine dogs and one heavily loaded sledge, and started off briskly to the accompaniment of a cheer from their shipmates. The dogs were so eager for exercise after their prolonged confinement aboard the ship that they dashed forward at their best speed, and it was necessary for one man to sit upon the sledge in order to moderate the pace. Mackintosh had hoped to get to Hut Point that night, but luck was against him.

User Review  - Elena Garcia - Goodreads

Very amazed about all the problems they had and how they faced them. Reading how Shackleton and his mates had thought every eventuality they could suffer and how prepared they went, it's just incredible. Read full review
