This is agraphic-story approach to retelling of the history of the lost Shackleton Expedition. It is one of multiple titles by Capstone Press aimed at making history accessible while accurate. It is vetted by history/library experts and includes direct quotations from primary sources sited on the credits pages. Back matter includes additional text-only bulleted notes, glossary, internet sites, bibliography, index, and suggested further readings.
