Summary
In 1914, Ernest Shackleton and his team set out to cross Antarctica going via the South Pole. However, in 1915, Shackleton's ship, the Endurance, became trapped in ice. Shackleton's crew eventually had to abandon ship and live on the ice in freezing temperatures and blizzards, inadequately clothed and with only the food they could catch from the sea. Shackleton and five crew members set off on an epic voyage in a small, open boat to find help in one of the planet's most uninhabited and hostile environments, eventually returning months later to successfully rescue all of the men. This incredible story is retold in vivid detail using quotes from Shackleton and men on the expedition, and is illustrated with contemporary photographs and artefacts. The story of this expedition is one of the most astonishing feats of exploration and human endeavour ever recorded
