Shackleton’s Way by Morrell and Caparell

This book was never reviewed by AudioFile Magazine, but here’s what Books-on-Tape had to say:
From 1914 to 1916, Ernest Shackleton and his men survived the wreck of their ship ENDURANCE, crushed in the Antarctic ice, stranded twelve hundred miles from civilization with no means of communication and no hope for rescue. When the ice began to break up, Shackleton set out to save them all on his heroic eight-hundred-mile-trip across the frigid South Atlantic – in little more than a rowboat. Unlike similar polar expeditions, every man survived – not only in good health, but also in good spirits – all due to Shackleton’s leadership. Now, Shackleton scholar Margot Morrell and WALL STREET JOURNAL writer Stephanie Capparell team up to present Shackleton’s timeless leadership skills – skills that can be learned by anyone – to a new generation.

About Simon

Simon is an actor who found his way into audiobook narrating as a side-gig and seems to have made a success of it. With some training as an actor as a child (just a couple of hours a week, but it stuck) and 15 years working inside the BBC (ending up as one of the presenters/newsreaders on BBC Radio 4 in London) he found the ideal combination for an audiobook narrator. Found his way to California two decades ago and never left.
