The quest for Frank Wild by Angie Butler( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Quest for Frank Wild tells the gripping story of Angie Butler's determination to unravel the truth of the final years of Frank Wild, one of the greatest British Edwardian Polar explorers of all time. He supposedly died in penury unable to come to terms with Ernest Shackleton's death and forgotten by his fellowmen in the small mining town of Klerksdorp near Johannesburg. The little that was known of his later life in South Africa has been maligned by hearsay and sensational journalism and most tragically of all, no-one knew where he was buried. An outstanding man lost in life and in death. he author's seven year journey finally uncovers an extraordinary untold story and by doing so not only fulfils Wild's wish to have his Memoirs published but ultimately makes an astonishing discovery. The Memoirs stand alone as a unique account of Edwardian Polar exploration"--Http://www.questforfrankwild.com
Aurora Australis : 1908-09 by Ernest Henry Shackleton( Book )

2 editions published in 1908 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an age when it is fashionable to forget the achievements of the great explorers of the heroic age, comes the timely rebirth of this legendary book, penned by a band of brave British men whose wit and wisdom blazes like a sun beside today's lesser stars. In 1907 Ernest Shackleton led the Nimrod Expedition to Antarctica. He established a base camp at Cape Royds on Ross Island and built a wooden hut to serve as headquarters. Because of his prior experience with Robert Scott¿s first expedition, Shackleton knew the sunless winter months spent in these cramped quarters would test the morale of his men, so he set several of them to work writing and printing the first book ever produced on the Antarctic continent. Containing fact, fiction, humour, prose and poetry, "Aurora Australis," is one of the most extraordinary travel books ever written. It contains stories about the Antarctic wildlife, describes the harsh conditions suffered by the explorers and recounts their journey to the top of Mount Erebus, a nearby active volcano surrounded by ice. An estimated one hundred copies were originally "Printed at the Sign of the Penguin" by these gifted authors, the result of which is a unique symbol of the heroic age of exploration. Because of its rarity a first edition of "Aurora Australis" recently sold for more than $100,000. This special edition is being produced in an effort to raise awareness of the need to conserve the four huts used by the British explorers, along with the remarkable memorabilia and icebound supplies preserved within their frozen walls. Having endured nearly a century of harsh weather, these huts still symbolise the nobler aspects of human nature which took these talented and brave men to Antarctica. The buildings are now considered to be some of the most endangered historic structures in the world.--back cover
