Summary

In this extraordinary adventure memoir and tie-in to the PBS documentary, Tim Jarvis, one of the world's leading explorers, describes his modern-day journey to retrace, for the first time ever—and in period clothing and gear—the legendary 1914 expedition of Sir Ernest Shackleton. 
In early 1914, British explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton and his team sailed for Antarctica, attempting to be the first to reach the South Pole. Instead of glory, Shackleton and his crew found themselves in an epic struggle for survival: a three-year odyssey on the ice and oceans of the Antarctic that endures as one of the world’s most famous tales of adventure, endurance, and leadership ever recorded. 
In the winter of 2013, celebrated explorer Tim Jarvis, a veteran of multiple polar expeditions, set out to recreate Sir Ernest Shackleton’s treacherous voyage over sea and mountain, outfitted solely with authentic equipment—clothing, boots, food, and tools—from Shackleton’s time, a feat that has never been successfully accomplished. 
Shackleton's Epic is the remarkable record of Jarvis and his team’s epic journey. Beautifully designed and illustrated with dozens of photographs from the original voyage and its modern reenactment, it is a visual feast for readers and historians alike, and an essential new chapter in the story that has inspired adventurers across every continent for a century.

    The Most Practical & Modern Guide to Living a Minimalist Lifestyle in 7 DaysIs your house overflowing with stuff that you don’t use or need? Clutter can: • Overwhelm the senses • Consume space • Drain energy from our surroundings • Cause stress and anxietyThis book will show you how to lighten up so you can walk into your home and be surrounded only by the things you love. Living in a minimalistic way means clearing the clutter from your life to focus on what’s truly important. Chances are, 75% of the things in your home are no benefit to your life at all. You’ll also find that throwing out a few garbage bags feels even better than therapy.Why do you hold onto things? Here are just some of the reasons: • Security—but the paradox is that the more we cling, the more frustrated and overwhelmed we feel. • Addiction—shopping is a high and the novelty wears off. • Approval—keeping material representations of who we are is one way we show off. • Identity—we identify with what we own so that’s why we’re upset when something is stolen or broken. • Obligation to others—we please others by keeping gifts and inherited things we don’t really like or need.By letting go of possessions that no longer serves us, we can • Let go of old beliefs • Open ourselves up to new opportunities and relationships • See your home, your life for what they really are • Need less and do more • Cultivate meaningful relationships • Be more in tune with yourself in a meditative space • Stop shopping as a form of therapy • Stop wasting money • Restore clarity • FIND WHAT YOU REALLY VALUEWhen you have inner clutter, it expands to your environment. So when you live in a clean and soothing environment, it can only benefit your inner life.Don’t let the word minimalism scare you. Minimalistic living is not about getting rid of modern advancements and living in the stone age. It’s only about keeping things that are useful, meaningful and add value to your life. While it does not place importance on material things and lavish living, minimalism is also not about denying yourself of the things you need. The guide is divided by different rooms and topics to make it easy and practical to refer to. • Entryway • Kitchen • Living Room • Bathroom • Bedroom • Children’s Rooms • Teen Rooms • Garage • Basement • Attic • Garden • Office • Computer & Technology • Closets • Mail • Sentimental Objects • Photos • Cards & Letters • Music • PeopleThis book also helps you • Recognize Clutter • Declutter, clean & organize your home room by room • Sell your things for profit • Shop for a minimalist wardrobe • Get your family on board • Declutter digital content and computer files • Go car-free or car-lite • Surround yourself with people who add value to your life • Maintain your space once you’ve minimalizedLiving with less is the first step to a peaceful mind. It makes space for the new to come in. Buy the book, put it into practice and welcome positive change into your life now.
