You Wouldn't Want to be an Egyptian Mummy!
Shackleton plans to make the first overland crossing of the vast continent of Antarctica via the South Pole. That’s 2,060 miles (3,330 km) across a mostly uncharted, frozen wilderness!
Shackleton puts an ad in a newspaper: “Men wanted for hazardous journey. Small wages, bitter cold, long months of complete darkness, constant danger, safe return doubtful. Honor and recognition in case of success.” You read the ad with great interest. Eager for adventure, you apply immediately. Shackleton decides to take you on!
