A year and a half of hell

“I have had a year and a half of hell, and am older of course, but no lives have been lost, though we have been through what no other Polar expedition has done. It was Nature against us all the time the cable [to the Daily Chronicle] barely describes a little of what it was. Wild and Crean were splendid throughout.”

— letter from Ernest Shackleton to Emily Shackleton
