    DescriptionAs war clouds darkened over Europe in 1914, a party led by Sir Ernest Shackleton set out to make the first crossing of the entire Antarctic continent via the Pole. But their initial optimism was short-lived as ice floes closed around their ship, gradually crushing it and marooning twenty-eight men on the polar ice. Alone in the world's most unforgiving environment, Shackleton and his team began a brutal quest for survival. And as the story of their journey across treacherous seas and a wilderness of glaciers and snow fields unfolds, the scale of their courage and heroism becomes movingly clear.

    Sir Ernest Shackleton (1874-1922) was a junior officer under Robert Falcon Scott during the 1901-1904 expedition to the South Pole. His expedition on the whaler "Nimrod" in 1907 earned him a knighthood. Steven Crossley is one of a select group of narrators who have recorded over two hundred audiobooks. He has won multiple "AudioFile" Earphones Awards, including for "The Ground Beneath Her Feet" by Salman Rushdie and "Sharpe's Fury" by Bernard Cornwell.
