Review Text

Endurance is the true story of Shackleton's incredible voyage in 1914 to cross the Antarctic overland. His ship the 'Endurance' was beset by ice in early 1915 and then crushed ten months later. Shackleton and his men were 1200 miles away from the nearest outpost of humanity. The fact that the crew managed to survive, once Shackleton and five others had sailed 650 miles across the 'Raving Fifties' and the 'Screaming Sixties' to the south-east of Cape Horn, is the stuff of legend vividly told in Shackleton's own account 'South'. What Lansing adds are the perspectives from other members of the crew and the trivia that goes along with any expedition. These are drawn from diaries, private papers and personal interviews. It is a fantastic story brilliantly told. (Kirkus UK)show more
