Publisher Description

The astonishing saga of polar explorer Ernest Shackleton's survival for over a year on the ice-bound Antarctic seas, as Time magazine put it, "defined heroism." Alfred Lansing's scrupulously researched and brilliantly narrated book -- with over 200,000 copies sold -- has long been acknowledged as the definitive account of the Endurance's fateful trip. To write their authoritative story, Lansing consulted with ten of the surviving members and gained access to diaries and personal accounts by eight others. The resulting book has all the immediacy of a first-hand account, expanded with maps and illustrations especially for this edition.

Endurance — Shackelton’s Incredible Voyage by Alfred Lansing

From the first chapter.

“Thus their plight was naked and terrifying in its simplicity. If they were to get out—they had to get themselves out.”

To get themselves out the captain and crew faced life or death challenges daily for over two years.

To me this is a must read for all readers of any age.

I challenge you to read the sample at least through the first chapter and then NOT own the book.

Enjoy :)
