On the way from Elephant Island to South Georgia island the men had to be on a rotating shift of hacking away at the ice that was growing on their boat. This would have been an extreme duty because if one of the men were to fall overboard they most likely would have frozen to death. Shackleton knew his men would have to be well rested and alert to do this task and that is why they were on a rotating shift. This showed
To be a leader, what does that mean to you? Well to most it is a public figure that represents a large group positively. Good traits of a leader would have to be, stay engaged, remaining positive and optimistic, and also being very confident. A good leader should present all of these traits. Now with the topic of “Shipwreck at the Bottom of the World” the Leader, Shackleton presented all of these traits which had helped the entire crew get through the endeavour. Shackleton had been to the arctic many times which had been previous experience for the journey ahead. With this experience most would think everyone would be ready for the journey.
This is because throughout the whole story the survivors never gave up. They fought through the tremendous weather waiting for help. The survivors knew the chance of surviving was very slim, yet they held on to that little hope of rescue. That little hope helped them survive long enough for rescue. Not only did the survivors on the tankers have hope.
Rosenblatt wrote the article to convey that selflessness can be perhaps the best act of charity and power a person can give, and that it can really show a person’s true character. The man must’ve known that if he stayed in the water that he would perish, but he put the needs and lives of the other passengers before his, a true act of courage and kindness that the survivors surely remember each day they continue to live. The passenger showed the he had power over nature, even though in the end, he himself succumbed to nature. He showed that even the greatest acts of compassion can be given in the face of death. The overall theme of Roger Rosenblatt’s article, the overall inherent message, is that selflessness is perhaps the most valuable gift to be given, even when the cost itself may be
His fleet was hit by an intense storm, completely capsizing and destroying his ship, the Whydah. Two men survived this tragedy, one disappeared in history, while the other, Thomas Davis, lived on to pass down the hard account of the shipwreck to Cape Cod
The Tower Rock was the transition spot from the Great Plains to the unknown territory of the Rocky Mountains. Lewis was a very nice man, he always was ready to start the day off right for us. He had a lot of military training. Which helped him and us the crew with survivor skills. He was especially good at
Before Lewis and Clark explored it , the West was virtually untouched by Europeans. It was the home of many Native tribes., such as the Missouri, and Ohta Nations, the Tieton- Su, and the Nez Perce. It was also home to many unknow plants and animals, such as bison. The Lewis and Clark Expedition, faced many challenges and triumphs that changed the lives of many.
In the book, Endurance by Alfred Lansing, Shackleton and 27 other men are on a sailboat to cross the Weddell Sea in Antarctica.

The men are constantly faced with bad situations that only the personality as a group made it possible for them to overcome it.
To make matters worse, the ship owner collects his insurance money (Clifford 1). Is the ship owner morally wrong? Most people, including Clifford, would agree that the ship owner was morally wrong and is responsible for the death of the emigrants. However,
“On this day 390 years ago, the great explorer of Francis Drake died aboard ship off the coast of Panama. In his lifetime the great frontiers were ocean, and a historian later said, He lived by the sea, died on it, and was buried in it: Well, today we can say of the Challenger crew: Their dedication was, like Drake’s, complete.” He relates the death of the members of the Challenger to famous explorer, Sir Francis Drake. He is trying to show that even sir Francis died, his crew continued to fund exploration missions, just like he will continue to fund for NASA’s missions.
Let alone the fact that he acted as if he could care less about their lives. Although, the crew pushed through his torture for as long as they could. The ship landed in what they thought was Asia, but it was actually present day Canada. Here they encountered the Beothuk natives and the tribe chief, Akecheta.
emotional appeal by going back in history telling everyone that this is not the first time astronauts died in space mission, this comforts the public about risks astronauts take to do their job, this may not appeal for those who were skeptical about the program at the beginning, rather it is to gain more support for NASA. He used “courage’ and “brilliant” those words were carefully chosen to evoke patriotism as well as persuade broader audience. Finely closes his Pathos by naming the astronauts one by one. Naming them individually he’s trying connect with each family personally.
Each of their journeys had been preceded by others' failures. The sea was dangerous to navigate, men got lost, were drowned, became ill, and were driven insane. Deaths were not uncommon at sea, a fact which Columbus was well aware of. Lindbergh's flight was also in succession to prior deaths. He did not become the first to fly nonstop between New York and Paris due to others' lack of effort.
