Shackleton's Carpenter

Australian National Maritime Museum
2/25/20 to 3/1/20

In 1914, as war was about to envelope Europe, Sir Ernest Shackleton sailed to Antarctica with ambitions to walk to the South Pole. In “Shackleton’s Carpenter”, the voice of a minor character—that of McNish, one of the crew members who got trapped on the ice—gets heard. This epic tale of survival against all odds will be read in dramatised fashion by indomitable Australian author Peter FitzSimons.
