A brief but comely eulogy and character study published just after Shackleton's death. Begbie, a journalist, met Shackleton between the Endurance and Quest expeditions and based his book on conversations and interviews with Shackleton and others who knew him. Emily Shackleton was enraged to receive a copy of Begbie's book probably due to the usurpation of publishing priority, and certainly over some of Begbie's facts and whether he was sufficiently acquainted with Shackleton to write such a personal portrait.
