Overview
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 has long been acknowledged as the definitive account of the Endurance's fateful trip.

In August 1914, Shackleton and his crew set sail for the South Atlantic on an expedition to cross Antarctica on foot. Before the Endurance reached the last unexplored continent, it was locked fast in pack ice. When it was finally crushed, Shackleton led his men across 75 miles of floes to the nearest solid ground and then took a twenty-foot-long boat over 850 miles of the worst seas to reach the closest outpost of civilization.
