Shackled

Shackled by Chris Turney

In 2013, Australian earth scientist Chris Turney led an ambitious expedition to Antarctica. It promised so much - discovery, history, adventure - but came with great risk.

The story of Turney's ship, the Shokalskiy, and the plight of the 71 people on board was broadcast around the world. We watched, listened and read as they became trapped on Christmas Eve, the hull of the ship pierced by a tower of ice. Efforts to rescue them were thwarted by fierce blizzards and roaming icebergs.

It was the modern, wired version of Shackleton's ill-fated voyage and rescue, with one massive difference: Shackleton's wife and children were not with him.

Shackled is a classic adventure story with a twist. As the ghosts of explorers like Shackleton, Mawson and Ross look on, the day-to-day tribulations of a ship facing uncertain danger unfold before our very eyes. We discover firsthand the latest scientific findings from the frozen continent and learn the fates of the many intrepid explorers in whose footsteps Turney and his team walked.
