This is a new reading of the thrilling account of one of the most astonishing feats of exploration and human courage ever recorded.
In August of 1914, the British ship Endurance set sail for the South Atlantic. In October, 1915, still half a continent away from its intended base, the ship was trapped, then crushed in the ice. For five months, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men, drifting on ice packs, were castaways in one of the most savage regions of the world.
Lansing describes how the men survived a 1,000-mile voyage in an open boat across the stormiest ocean in the world and an overland trek through forbidding glaciers and mountains. The book recounts a harrowing adventure, but ultimately it is the nobility of these men and their indefatigable will that shines through.

I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook. The story is excellent as is the narration.
I was there!
I felt like I was there on the Endurance. The best audio book I've listened to...no exaggeration! The "verbal texture" used to describe the scenes was so realistic. GREAT read by the reader and of course...a great story!
One of the best books I've read
Clearly one of the greatest stories of human survival against all odds!
