This Web Page is under development.  What follows is just fill-in until I have time to develop a nice storyline. 


I think that the very first stop on this story page must be a quick recounting of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s remarkable expedition of 1915 aboard his ship “Endurance”.  This story was originally told by Shackleton in his book, “South” (currently again available – Carroll & Graf Publishing Group), and popularized in the book “Endurance” by Alfred Lansing.


I first read of the story in the April 1922 edition of National Geographic Magazine (Pg. 409).


I will write much more on this story later.  In the meantime GET THE BOOKS!  They are among the best books that you will ever read!  Promise!

Text Box: “For scientific leadership, give me Scott; for swift and efficient travel, Amundsen; but when you are in a hopeless situation, when there seems no way out, get down on your knees and pray for Shackleton.”
