'One of the most remarkable tales of human courage and determination. The story is gripping and the book is a classic of its kind' Sir Ranulph Fiennes Endurance is the story of one of the most astonishing feats of exploration and human courage ever recorded. In 1914 Sir Ernest Shackleton and a crew of 27 men set sail for the South Atlantic on board a ship called the Endurance. The object of the expedition was to cross the Antarctic overland. In October 1915, still half a continent away from their intended base, the ship was trapped, then crushed in ice. For five months Shackleton and his men, drifting on ice packs, were castaways on one of the most savage regions of the world. This utterly gripping book, based on first-hand accounts of crew members and interviews with survivors, describes how the men survived, how they lived together in camps on the ice for 17 months until they reached land, how they were attacked by sea leopards, the diseases which they developed, and the indefatigability of the men and their lasting civility towards one another in the most adverse conditions conceivable.
Industry Reviews
Endurance is the true story of Shackleton's incredible voyage in 1914 to cross the Antarctic overland. His ship the 'Endurance' was beset by ice in early 1915 and then crushed ten months later. Shackleton and his men were 1200 miles away from the nearest outpost of humanity. The fact that the crew managed to survive, once Shackleton and five others had sailed 650 miles across the 'Raving Fifties' and the 'Screaming Sixties' to the south-east of Cape Horn, is the stuff of legend vividly told in Shackleton's own account 'South'. What Lansing adds are the perspectives from other members of the crew and the trivia that goes along with any expedition. These are drawn from diaries, private papers and personal interviews. It is a fantastic story brilliantly told. (Kirkus UK)
