A compelling story of human perseverance. You empathize with every set back and cheer their achievements. Simon Prebble passionately incarnates each individual. See the Kodak website for Hurley's amazing photographs.
The story of a trip to the South Pole that ended in disaster. The struggles the people had to go through just to survive are amazing. The book was so fascinating, I bought the hardcover for my dad.
Wonderful story that more people should know about. Endurance was entertaining and informative regarding the battle these men had in fighting to survive and the necessity of coming together to do so.
Riveting throughout... Would definitely recommend this story. The reading by Mr. Preble, and the story of Shackleton are absolutely one of my most favorite.
This is a story about heroes who will not give up, even to the point of making the listener angry...and inadequate. But this is what real history is made of...human drama. ENJOY!
