SUMMARY

In August 1914, twenty-eight men aboard the ship "Endurance" began what was to be the "last of the great explorations"--the crossing of the vast Antarctic land mass. It turned into one of the most remarkable survival stories ever recorded. In this reissue of the original 1920 edition, Sir Ernest Shackleton, the legendary leader of the expedition, eloquently describes their fabled two-year odyssey in one of the most inhospitable regions on earth--the devastating crushing of the Endurance in a sea of ice, the crew's impossible journey over the barren, frozen wasteland of the Antarctic, their navigation across nearly a thousand miles of tumultuous seas in an open boat, and their ever-constant struggles against unimaginable cold, hunger, hardship, and despair as they struggled toward rescue. Filled with more than eighty-five photographs and illustrations from the journey, Shackleton's account is a distinctive tale of high adventure. It is also a lasting testament to his leadership and courage, as well as a moving statement about the human will to survive. Ernest Henry Shackleton was born on February 15, 1874, in County Kildare, Ireland. Shackleton was a journalist and a member of the Scottish Royal Geographical Society. He was honored with membership to The Explorers Club in New York in 1912. In 1914, Shackleton made his third and most famous trip to the Antarctic with the ship Endurance, planning to cross Antarctica via the South Pole for which he would be celebrated as one of the greatest polar explorers of all time. He died in January 1922.Cahill, Tim is the author of 'South: The Last Antarctic Expedition of Shackleton and the Endurance (Explorers Club Classics Series), Vol. 4', published 2008 under ISBN 9781599213231 and ISBN 1599213230.
