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.

"Bound for Antarctica, where polar explorer Ernest Shackleton planned to cross on foot the last uncharted continent, the Endurance set sail from England in August 1914. In January 1915, after battling its way for six weeks through a thousand miles of pack ice and now only a day's sail short of its destination, the Endurance became locked in an island of ice. For ten months the ice-moored Endurance drifted northwest before it was finally crushed. But for Shackleton and his crew of twenty-seven men the ordeal had barely begun. It would end only after a near-miraculous journey by Shackleton and a skeleton crew through over 850 miles of the South Atlantic's heaviest seas to the closest outpost of civilization. This astonishing tale of survival by Shackleton and all twenty-seven of his men for over a year on the ice-bound Antarctic seas, as Time magazine put it, "defined heroism." Alfred Lansing's brilliantly narrated book has long been acknowledged as the definitive account of the Endurance's fateful trip"--

In October 1914, the explorer, Ernest Shakleton and a team of men, set out on the ship, Endurance, to cross Antarctica via the South Pole. A few months into their voyage, the ship became trapped in ice, eventually sinking. With little hope of rescue, Shakleton's crew lived on the ice, enduring freezing temperatures and with only the food they could catch from the sea. When the ice floes began to crack beneath them, the men undertook a treacherous journey in three small lifeboats across the icy, stormy sea, eventually landing on Elephant Island - a place where no-one lived or was ever likely to visit... Retold in vivid detail and illustrated with contemporary photographs and artefacts, this story recounts one of the most astonishing feats of exploration and human endeavor ever recorded.
