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.
