Publisher's Summary

In August 1914, renowned explorer Ernest Shackleton and a crew of 27 set sail for the South Atlantic in pursuit of the last unclaimed prize in the history of exploration: the first crossing on foot of the Antarctic continent. They came with in 85 miles of their destination when their ship, Endurance, was trapped fast in the ice pack, and the crew was stranded on the floes. Their ordeal lasted for 20 grueling months, and the group made two near-fatal attempts to escape by open boat before they were finally rescued.

Drawing upon previously unavailable sources, Caroline Alexander gives us a riveting account of Shackleton's expedition. An extraordinary re-creation of the terrible beauty of Antarctica, the awful destruction of the ship, and the crew's heroic daily struggle for survival, The Endurance thrillingly describes one of the last great adventures in the brave age of exploration, perhaps the greatest of them all.

    "Endurance"

    I had read "South" prior to this. Together I feel I have a complete view of there dire situation. Very hard to stop listening, somedays I had to take the "long" way home.

    Story
    "An incredible story!"
    If you could sum up The Endurance in three words, what would they be?

    Courage, leadership and brotherhood


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Endurance?

    The return to Elephant Island


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When near the end of the journey back, the final three men, worn, frozen and starving, locked legs and slid down the icy slope!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely! An excellent telling of the incredible expedition.


    Any additional comments?

    Exceptional voice work!
