Author Rochelle Pennington traveled to the countries of England and Scotland to research Sir Ernest Shackleton’s epic 1914 travels aboard the ship Endurance with his crew of 27.
The author’s program will detail the extraordinary acts of determination used by the men to move fearlessly forward as they triumphed over the frozen Antarctic expanse where their lives were threatened daily. A leader among leaders, Commander Shackleton taught his men how to employ their thoughts to overcome every obstacle and to persevere against all odds, and he can inspire us to do the same.
Considered “the greatest survival story in history,” the journey lives on today as a timeless model which shows how ordinary people, armed only with the simple power of attitude, can dive headfirst into immense adversity and emerge victorious. The author’s power-point presentation features dozens of authentic documents and stunning photographs taken during the expedition.
