He challenged ‘The Boss’ in the ice floes of Antarctica. Now again, alone and destitute in the middle of a still night, he challenges him one last time. Shackleton’s ship Endurance sank in Antarctica, leaving him and his crew of 27 stranded. Harry McNish, Shackleton’s carpenter and brilliant shipwright, challenged The Boss, but went all the way with him, ensuring all lives were saved after a journey universally agreed to be the most astonishing voyage of survival in history.
For all his bravery, McNish was one of the very few who never received the Polar Medal.
What was it that caused this man to antagonise the hero of Antarctica? How does he come to terms with it now, alone on the wharfs of Wellington, New Zealand?
