Shackleton's Carpenter

Shackleton's CarpenterT640954722
He challenged 'The Boss' in the ice floes of Antarctica. Now again, alone and destitute in the middle of a still night, he challenges him one last time. Shackleton's Endurance sank in Antarctica, leaving him and his crew of 27 stranded. Harry McNish, Shackleton's carpenter and brilliant shipwright, challenged The Boss, but went all the way with him, ensuring all lives were saved after a journey universally agreed to be the most astonishing voyage of survival in history. For all his bravery and ingenuity, McNish was one of very few who never received the Polar Medal. What was it that caused this man to antagonise the hero of Antarctica, and how does he come to terms with it now, alone and destitute on the wharfs of Wellington, New Zealand.
