Reviews

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.

From Our Editors

In August of 1914, the explorer Ernest Shackleton set sail across the South Atlantic with a crew of 75 men, his goal to explore Antarctica on foot. Long before they reached their destination, the crew and their ship, ice locked the Endurance in her place. The next year passed in unimaginable loss and hardship, as the men laboriously broke through the ice to cross approximately 900 miles of ice and treacherous seas to the nearest point of civilization. Endurance features interviews with the expedition’s 10 survivors, excerpts from eight other crew members’ journals and special maps and illustrations.
