William Grill weaves a detailed visual narrative of Shackleton’s journey to Antarctica.
Grill’s impeccably researched drawings, rich with detail, fastidiously reproduce the minutiae of the expedition and his beautiful use of colored pencils and vibrant hues evoke the adventure and excitement that surrounded it. Children will love examining the diagrams of the peculiar provisions and the individual drawings of each sled dog and packhorse. This book takes the academic and historical information behind the expedition and reinterprets it for a young audience.
