In August 1914, the polar of explorer Ernest Shackleton boarded the Endurance and set sail for Antarctica, where he planned to pass the last unexplored continent on foot.In January 1915, after fighting its way through a thousand miles of pack ice and only a short day’s sailing from its destination, the Endurance became locked up in an ice island.Thus began the legendary race of Shackleton and his twenty-seven-man crew.For ten months, the moored endurance ice drifted from the northwest before finally being crushed between two ice cubes.With none of the options left, Shackleton and a skeleton crew attempted an almost impossible voyage of more than 850 km from the South Atlantic, the heaviest of the sea for the closest to the outpost of civilization.Their survival, and the survival of the men they left behind, depended on their small lifeboat succeeding in finding the island of South Georgia, a tiny spot on earth in a vast and hostile ocean.In Endurance, Ernest Shackleton’s final count as a fateful traveler, Alfred Lansing brilliantly recounts the harrowing and miraculous journey that defined the heroism of the modern age.
