Publisher Description

An Apple Books Classic edition.


“Huge blocks of ice, weighing many tons, were lifted into the air and tossed aside as other masses rose beneath them. We were helpless intruders in a strange world, our lives dependent upon the play of grim elementary forces that made a mock of our puny efforts.”


In the canon of true stories of adventure and exploration, Ernest Shackleton’s first-person account of the Endurance expedition stands alone. In 1914, Shackleton’s crew set out to traverse the Antarctic continent When their ship was crushed between massive sheets of ice, hope soon gave way to terror. After being trapped on a floe, Shackleton’s men risk life and limb to reach the shores of a desolate outcrop, where a small group sets out in search of rescue.


Shackleton documents their harrowing journey in an uncovered lifeboat, enduring freezing weather and unimaginable conditions. This riveting life-and-death drama is a testament to the human spirit. It will keep you glued to the page from beginning to end.
