Publisher Description

The untold story of the last odyssey of the heroic age of Antarctic exploration
Sir Ernest Shackleton’s 1914 Antarctic endeavor is legend, but for sheer heroism and tragic nobility, nothing compares to the saga of the Ross Sea party. This crew of explorers landed on the opposite side of Antarctica from the Endurance with a mission to build supply depots for Shackleton’s planned crossing of the continent. But their ship disappeared in a gale, leaving ten inexperienced, ill-equipped men to trek 1,356 miles in the harshest environment on earth. Drawing on the men’s own journals and photographs, The Lost Men is a masterpiece of historical adventure, a book destined to be a classic in the vein of Into Thin Air.

The Lost Men--Amazing book!

I've read a lot about polar expeditions, and this book ranks right up there with the best. I suggest reading "Endurance" first, but it's still an exciting read even if you don't. You'll be hooked!
