Shackleton’s Boat Journey
by Worsley, F.A.
Commerorating the 100th anniversary of Ernest Shackleon’s 1914-1916 expedition to the Antarctic, this account, written by the captain of HMS "Endurance", stands as one of the greatest adventure stories of all time. The ship was crushed by ice, and the crew drifted on an ice floe for five months. Shackleton, Worsley, and four others then sailed 800 miles in a small boat to the island of South Georgia, an astounding feat of navigation and courage.
