By Alfred Lansing
For ten months the ice-moored Endurance drifted northwest earlier than it used to be eventually overwhelmed among ice floes. with out techniques left, Shackleton and a skeleton workforce tried a near-impossible trip over 850 miles of the South Atlantic’s heaviest seas to the nearest outpost of civilization. Their survival, and the survival of the lads they left at the back of, relied on their small lifeboat effectively discovering the island of South Georgia—a tiny dot of land in an unlimited and adversarial ocean.
In Endurance, the definitive account of Ernest Shackleton’s fateful journey, Alfred Lansing brilliantly narrates the harrowing and brilliant voyage that has outlined heroism for the fashionable age.
