The epic firsthand account of the Endurance expedition. As the first world war broke out in Europe, Shackleton's expedition to the South Pole became trapped by ice. Their ship, the Endurance, was crushed and the men were forced to survive in and escape from one of the world's most hostile enviroments. Traversing glaciers, scaling cliffs and crossing treacherous seas in open boats, all the time threatened by cold and hunger, the men, through their own strength and Shackleton's leadership, all made it to safety.show more
