Description

  • ENDURANCE
  • In the summer of 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton set off aboard the Endurance bound for the South Atlantic. The goal of his
    expedition was to cross the Antarctic overland, but more than a year later, and still half a continent away from the
    intended base, the Endurance was trapped in ice and eventually was crushed. For five months Shackleton and his crew
    survived on drifting ice packs in one of the most savage regions of the world before they were finally able to set
    sail again in one of the ship's lifeboats. Alfred Lansing's Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage is a
    white-knuckle account of this astounding odyssey.

    Through the diaries of team members and interviews with survivors, Lansing reconstructs the months of terror and
    hardship the Endurance crew suffered. In October of 1915, there "were no helicopters, no Weasels, no Sno-Cats, no
    suitable planes. Thus their plight was naked and terrifying in its simplicity. If they were to get out--they had to get
    themselves out." How Shackleton did indeed get them out without the loss of a single life is at the heart of Lansing's
    magnificent true-life adventure tale.
