The heroes in this book are the six men who were in the support party placing food depots for Shackleton's planned crossing of Antarctica in 1915. Their most southerly depot was placed at Mount Hope, 360 miles onto the continent from their base at McMurdo Sound. A new detailed account of this less told but no less epic struggle for survival.
