This gripping story of one of the world's foremost polar explorers, told through brilliant photography, compelling text, and quotes from Ernest Shackleton himself, is an inspiring tale of the triumph of the human spirit in the face of adversity.
In 1925, Shackleton led a group of 27 men in an attempt to be the first people ever to walk across the vast Antarctic interior. Along the way, his ship, the Endurance, became frozen in thick ice in the middle of the Weddell Sea. They were stuck for ten months before the ship disintegrated under the pressure of the crushing ice.
Shackleton and his men then embarked on a desperate journey to save themselves on land. At the end of this two-year ordeal, Shackleton had not lost a man.
