    DescriptionIn August 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton's ship Endurance set sail for the South Atlantic. The object of the expedition was to cross the Antarctic overland. In October 1915, still half a continent away from their intended base, the ship was trapped, then crushed, in ice. For five months, Shackleton and his men, drifting on ice packs, were castaways in one of the most savage regions of the world. This gripping account of Sir Ernest Shackleton's epic adventure, leading his men to safety, has sold over 300,000 copies in book form. Newly available on audio CD and narrated with great skill and tension by Tim Pigott-Smith, "Endurance" recreates one of the most astonishing feats of exploration and survival ever recorded. Based on first hand accounts it is a story of extraordinary human courage and will triumphing against all the odds. The author, Alfred Lansing was a journalist and writer. He is no longer living. The narrator, Tim Pigott Smith has had a distinguished acting career, first coming to prominence in television's "The Jewel in the Crown". A successful film, television and theatre actor, he has always retained an interest in the Spoken Word and regularly features on radio. His audiobook credits include "Shackleton's Way" for CSA WORD.
