In 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 first trapped, and 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. Based on first-hand accounts, this gripping narrative of Sir Ernest Shackleton leading his men to safety has sold over 300,000 copies in book form and is now newly available on CD, narrated with great skill and tension by Tim Pigott-Smith.
Sir Ernest Shackleton (1874-1922) was an Anglo-Irish explorer dominant during the period known as 'The Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration'. Tim Pigott-Smith is a highly-acclaimed British television, film and radio actor.
