    (1467)

    In August of 1914, the British ship Endurance set sail for the South Atlantic. In October, 1915, still half a continent away from its intended base, the ship was trapped, then crushed in the ice. For five months, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men, drifting on ice packs, were castaways in one of the most savage regions of the world.

    "Amazing story, well written & well read"
    Overall

    The story of Sir Ernest Shackelton's attempt at a transcontinental crossing of Antarctica is simply riveting. It is far beyond modern comprehension how Shackelton and his crew accomplished what they did and survived to tell the tale. This version is very well written. The narrator does an excellent job of reading the story with the energy and enthusiasm it deserves -- without getting overly dramatic -- letting the story tell itself.
