|About the Book|
This is the epic first hand account of the Endurance expedition. As the first world war broke out in Europe, Shackletons expedition to the South Pole became trapped by ice. Their ship, the Endurance, was crushed and the men were forced to survive in and escape from one of the worlds most hostile environment. Traversing glaciers, scaling cliffs and crossing treacherous seas in open boats, all the time threatened by brutal cold and hunger, the men, through their own strength and Shackletons leadership, all made it to safety. This story makes the efforts of latterday adventurers look pale in comparison.
