When leading an expedition to cross the Antarctic, Sir Ernest Shackleton was forced to abandon his ship the Endurance when it was trapped in the ice. Leaving most of the men camping on the ice, in temperatures down to 100 below, Shackleton set off to get help. The expedition is one of the most incredible feats of survival ever recorded. Illus. with photographs from the expedition.

I liked how it included every detail about the voyage, including those which are so often left out of other accounts. The story is very well told and EXCITING!
