A well-researched story brilliantly recounts how twenty-eight men battled against almost insuperable odds in 1914 to return to civilization after their ship Endurance sank near the South Pole. Reprint.

Perseus Publishing
The astonishing saga of polar explorer Ernest Shackleton's survival for over a year on the ice-bound Antarctic seas, as Time magazine put it, "defined heroism." Alfred Lansing's scrupulously researched and brilliantly narrated book -- with over 200,000 copies sold -- has long been acknowledged as the definitive account of the Endurance's fateful trip. To write their authoritative story, Lansing consulted with ten of the surviving members and gained access to diaries and personal accounts by eight others. The resulting book has all the immediacy of a first-hand account, expanded with maps and illustrations especially for this edition.

Fantastic, true story of human endurance. Not for young children.

An absolute classic that everyone should read. These men proved that what thee human spirit can accomplish is truly amazing.

(Side note: you might want to read this in the middle of a long, hot summer, when you'll appreciate the cold more.)

This was a riveting survival story, similar to Unbroken in its intensity. Highly recommended!
