Richards was a member of the Shackleton’s Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition 1914-17 which saw the dramatic loss of the ‘Endurance’. Had Shackleton been successful in crossing the Antarctic continent they would have met up with the Ross Sea Shore Party whose duty it was to lay depots in anticipation of the crossing. Richards was a member of this Party which encountered many difficulties and is an inspiring story on its own. With their ship ‘Aurora’ ripped from its moorings, along with most of their supplies, ten men scavenged equipment and food and set out to set the depots for men who would never come. This is one of the few accounts regarding this part of Shackleton’s expedition. This is a nice reprint of this scarce volume. See Spence 969.
