by Shackleton, Ernest
As the war clouds darkened over Europe in 1914, a party led by veteran explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton set out to cross the Antarctic continent coast-to-coast via the South Pole. Their initial optimism was short-lived. Ice floes closed around their ship, Endurance, gradually crushing her and marooning 28 men on the ice. This special volume describing their storied quest for survival includes detailed maps.
