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"--

Ernest Shackleton was an Anglo-Irish explorer who is famous for his Arctic voyages, and for being a total badass. He made a number of trips south, including one in which he and his team made it a 100 or so miles from the South Pole. This was the closest anyone had gotten, and Shackleton would be knighted for his efforts. Soon enough he adventured south again on what was called the the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition 1914–17. This disastrous and amazing tale is the focus of Shackleton's book South, a work of non-fiction whose thrilling adventure rivals the most vividly written fiction. After Shackleton's earlier voyages he had a knack for fundraising, so upon securing about $4M in today's money, he enlisted a crew of 56 men. The fated Endurance would be the main ship, while the vessels James Caird and Aurora would serve as support ships. Disaster struck the expedition when the Endurance became trapped in pack ice, and was slowly crushed before the shore parties could land.
