South: The Last Antarctic Expedition of Shackleton and the Endurance
The legendary expedition leader eloquently narrates his torturous two-year odyssey after his ship Endurance was crushed by a sea of ice in 1915. Shackleton and his crew confronted the most desolate place on earth—the frozen Antarctic wasteland and a thousand miles in an open boat—battling constant cold, hunger, hardship, and despair as they struggled toward the unknown. Shackleton's gripping personal account, originally published in 1919, includes 85 photographs of this monumental achievement, an enduring story of the strength of the human spirit.
