Excerpt from South: The Story of Shackleton's Last Expedition, 1914-1917

Owing to the loss of the Endurance and the disaster to the Aurora, certain documents relating mainly to the organization and preparation of the Expedition have been lost but, anyhow, I had no intention of presenting a detailed account of the scheme of preparation, storing, and other necessary but, to the general reader, unimportant affairs, as since the beginning of this century every book on Antarctic exploration has dealt fully with this matter. I therefore briefly place before you the inception and organiza tion of the Expedition, and insert here the copy of the programme which I prepared in order to arouse the interest of the general public in the Expedition.
