    Shackleton, Worsley and Creen
    start hiking across the mountains
    on Georgia Island. They don’t have
    a map to show where they were going.
  • 5. Patient-Blue
    Ernest Shackleton is a very patient man. One example of his patience is on page 26. “But by March 16, winter on the ice seemed inevitable. Shackleton ordered the fires to be burned down. The men all knew what that meant: they were stuck until the ice broke in the spring.” Another example is when “he announced they would stay where they were and let the drifting pack carry them Northward. From there they would be in better position to make for Paulet Island.” They pitched camp where they were on the ice. The new camp was called Patience Camp.
  • 6. Adventurous-Purple
    Shackleton is also a very adventurous man. He once said, “I am good as an explorer and nothing else.”“As a child he had been something of a loner reading adventure stories in the day.” The author Armstrong wrote” the forty year old Shackleton was a showman with a polar Glory.” She also said “he had been bitten hard by an exploration bug.” Shackleton had gone to the South Pole twice before the journey of the Endurance.
  • 7. Leader-Red
    Shackleton’s leadership was very important to his journey. “Shackleton was a master at keeping his crew working together.” He never let the crew forget that their strength lay in unity.”“Under Shackletons leadership fighting never broke out among the men even though they weren’t exactly cut out to be buddies.”“Shackleton made sure the ship’s routine was always followed.” Even when hiking across the mountains of Georgia Island Shackleton lead the way. He brought all the men home through the hard times.
  • 8. Shackleton’s Special Place
    A special place for Shackleton would be at the end of the South Pole where there is no more ice. Shackleton’s goal was to cross the South Pole end to end but he got stopped by the ice. It would be very special for him to make it across. On each of the three journeys he took to the South Pole his goal was ruined by Mother Nature. His polar glory was his life.
    He set out on another journey after the Endurance in 1922 even though he was very sick. On his journey when he was close to dying Macklin the Doctor said to him ”you’ll have to change your way of life boss.” He said back to him “that I can’t do.” He died soon after.
    End of South Pole ice
  • 9. Confidence Button
    Once Shackleton got home from the South Pole I would give him a Confidence Button. His motto was “by endurance we conquer”. A man in his crew named Bakewell said” he was always cheerful and gave everyone confidence that we would get out of” the Antarctic. Shackleton said “he was confident that the Norwegian built ship with the thick skull could get them through the winter. He only had one concern that the ship would drift off course.” He didn’t even worry about them all surviving. Shackleton was confident the men could march 346 miles across the frozen sea with three lifeboats.

    This button represents Shackleton’s confidence that they would get to land.
  • 10. Shackleton’s Café Menu

    This lasagna is
    Leader Lobster $11.25
    This lobster is a crowd pleaser. It is a Maine lobster
    smothered in lemon sauce. Shackleton was a
    master at keeping his crew together. You will have a tight
    crew if you let your family buy this lobster.
    Boat Trip Special $8.95
    This was a special treat for the crew and it can be for
    you too. The buffet consists of anchovies in oil, baked beans
    and hare for appetizers. The entrees are ham and sausage.
    Boat Block Soup $8.75
    The boat block is a block of food “composed of lard, oatmeal,
    beef protein, vegetable protein, salt and sugar. The block is
    boiled and is turned into a soup.
  • 11. Shackleton’s Café Menu
    Surf & Turf Buffet $12.55
    This buffet consists of turtle soup, jugged
    hare and whitebait fish as the main course. For dessert
    there is mince pies, figs and plum pudding. This meal
    can feed your whole crew (family).
    Light Endurance Lunch $8.75
    The Light Endurance Lunch is
    an everyday meal that the crew
    would eat. It consists of jam, bread
    and soup. It is served with a nice
    hot cocoa.
  • 12. Shackleton’s Café Menu
    South Pole Chills $2.50
    This white vanilla ice cream is just like the
    South Pole. It is chilled at -72
    Degrees (average temp. of South Pole)
    and is white just like the color of
    the Pole. You might even
    get a few chunks of frost with it.
    Hot drinks all around $6.25
    Just what Shackleton would have
    loved a round of hot cocoa.
    He would always give out
    hot drinks to cheer everyone up.
    By the end of the journey the crew
    was limited to one hot drink a day
    each. This round of drinks would
    have kept the crew warm.
  • 13. Shackleton’s song
    I think Shackleton would really enjoy Eureka’s song Going Home. The song is about him and his crew’s journey on the Endurance. Eureka’s Going Home talks about Shackleton’s confidence that they will all get home alive. An example of this is the lines “Our ship is gone but our will is strong. We’ll survive”. This is like when Bakewell said” he was always cheerful and gave everyone confidence that we would get out of” the Antarctic. The song is a brief summary of the key events. The words “no mission’s won but hope is not gone” have an important meaning. Shackleton’s goal was to go across the South Pole end to end but he was stopped by the ice. He never gave up hope though that they would get out of the ice and get back to land. The part about are stores are gone is about how all their food was gone. They had to eat seal to survive. I think this song nicely summarizes Shackleton’s journey.
