South: The Last Antarctic Expedition of Shackleton and the Endurance
This first-person account of the Endurance crew's famed odyssey across the frozen Antarctic is one of the most amazing adventure stories ever. In the summer of 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men set our to make the first sea-to-sea crossing of the most inhospitable continent on earth. One year later, halfway, to their objective and their ship destroyed by ice, the expedition began an unbelievable journey back to the fringe of civilization. "South" is their story of battles against incredible obstacles for nearly two years, surviving on ice floes, sailing hundreds of miles on tumultuous seas, battling the unimaginable cold of the Antarctic winter, enduring debilitating hunger, injury, and misfortune, and finally overcoming improbable odds to reach help.
As Shackleton himself wrote at the time of the book's original publication in 1920, this is "a book of high adventure, strenuous days and lonely nights, unique experiences, and, above all, records of unflinching determination, supreme loyalty, and generous self-sacrifice on the part of my men". It is a story that resonates to this day as the classic tale of survival, resolve, and leadership.
Alfred Lansing's Endurance made the journey famous; Shackleton's book brings it dramatically to life.
