An extraordinary tale of survival that reads like a good novel. It's the gripping day-by-day story of Shackleton's legendary perseverance: losing his ship in the ice, drifting helplessly across the Weddell Sea, and finally reaching Elephant Island, from where he sailed 800 miles to South Georgia to get help for his stranded men. With maps and a 8-page selection of Frank Hurley photographs.
Author: Alfred Lansing
NHA Staff Recommendation:
"It's an absolutely fascinating account of their ship, The Endurance, becoming trapped and crushed by pack ice in the Weddell Sea, forcing the men to abandon ship. Shackleton was a very brave man and put the lives of his men above all else. A great tale." - Suzanne Kiser
