Sir Ernest Shackleton's South is one of the greatest survival stories of all time. In 1914, Shackleton led a party of men hoping to be the first to traverse the Antarctic, but when their ship became crushed by ice 350 miles from land, the expedition soon became a matter of life and death. This is the extraordinary account of treacherous seas, glaciers and relentless cold, and wonderfully encapsulates the heroic age of Antarctic exploration.

Comments about South : The Endurance Expedition:
One of history's most amazing feats, but Shackleton's account is perhaps constrained by modesty. I enjoyed Worlsey's account "Shackleton's Boat Journey" much more - although I did read it first.
