Endurance, Shackleton's Incredible Voyage

Alfred Lansing

An extraordinary tale of survival that reads like a good novel. It's the gripping day-by-day story of Shackleton's legendary perseverance: losing his ship in the ice, drifting helplessly across the Weddell Sea and finally reaching Elephant Island, from where he sailed 800 miles to South Georgia to get help for his stranded men. This 100th anniversary edition is outfitted with maps, an expanded selection of Frank Hurley's photographs and an introduction by Nathaniel Philbrick.
