Just over three months after Sir Ernest Shackleton's death, Emily Shackleton invited Hugh Robert Mill to write Sir Ernest's biography. Mill accepted immediately and he and Emily then communicated frequently by mail to create the biography a mere twelve months later. Their correspondence reveals facts about Sir Ernest, his family, and associates not found in the published works. It is the only book published which sheds any light on the character of Emily Shackleton, who was indeed a remarkable woman. The correspondence is expertly annotated by Michael H. Rosove.
