Estate Pipes: Irish Estate: Peterson Great Explorers Series "Shackleton" (Fishtail) (2001)  

Product Number: 004-004-2401

We've had more than a few "Great Explorer" pipes from Peterson, make their way into the estates, and it's always a treat for me because, besides the fact that they are exceptionally made, I get to learn about another great Irish explorer. This piece was made in honor of Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton (15 February 1874 – 5 January 1922) who was born in County Kildare, Ireland (sound familiar Peterson fans?), and was one of the principal figures of the period known as the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration. As a polar explorer, he led three British expeditions to the Antarctic, including a southern march which established a record Farthest South latitude, 97 geographical miles (112 statute miles, 180 km) from the South Pole, by far the closest convergence in exploration history up to that time.

Upon the time of his death, he heavily in debt and lauded in the press, thereafter largely forgotten, even while the heroic reputation of his rival Scott was sustained for many decades. Much later in the 20th century, however, Shackleton was "rediscovered" and rapidly became a cult figure, a role model for leadership as one who, in extreme circumstances, kept his team together in a survival story described by polar historian Stephanie Barczewski as "incredible".
