Shackleton has finally succeeded and they are all on the land. Even though the physical conditions seemed unbearable they all got to land safe and sound with lots of joy still left inside of them. I know I say this for every chapter, but honestly I don't know how they survived this journey. I try to think about being in their positions and I just can't seem to wrap my mind around it. These men were truly an inspiration; I think anyone who reads this book will agree with me. The fact that these men have been through rough times and are willing to still continue, show a great deal of strength, not only physically but mentally as well. I would assume that they are drained from this, but from reading this it seems like they are still motivated to continue on. Shackleton has not let these men down yet, and I don't believe he ever will; He is truly an amazing, motivated leader! I am very glad I got a chance to read this story, it was definitely worth it!!!!
