by Alfred Lansing

Basic Books | March 3, 2008 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible!!! I just finished this book and by the end I was certain that this is the greatest real life story I have ever read! The adventure that Shackleton and his crew underwent is simply astounding. With the details of well kept diaries hardly any events are left to speculation. One can feel the emotional and physical trials that the ill fated expedition went through. Simply amazing what the human body and mind are capable of withstanding!! A must read for anyone who loves real life adventure novels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Endurance, by A. Lansing The ULTIMATE BEST in drama & suspense, my all-time favorite book. Unbelievable n.f., first read in 70 college, I've now given 25 away. Often out of print, it's currently available again because of Alexander's bestseller photo-story of same title. Also well written.
