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.

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.
The wonderful story of Shackleton, read and performed impeccably.
A story of leadership, adventure and humanity, I enjoyed every minute.
The only frustration was missing the wonderful pictures I imagine are in the printed version.
Courage, leadership and brotherhood
The return to Elephant Island
When near the end of the journey back, the final three men, worn, frozen and starving, locked legs and slid down the icy slope!
Absolutely! An excellent telling of the incredible expedition.
Exceptional voice work!
