The title of this book says it all. I first read this book in Jr. High school and it tore me apart. People today have no conception of what those who went before went through just to survive. The fairly recent revival of interest in Shackleton and his voyage serves to show us today what can be done. Many of those who die in extreme conditions do so because they just give up. This book is worth reading and owning just to get a new perspective on life. I was thrilled to find a copy and at 71 years I still find inspiration in the story.

These were very strong men who had the mentality to survive in extreme cold and with almost no food and shelter.

This is amazing true story of survival and determination of Ernst Shackleton and the crew of the ship, Endurance. While Shackleton wanted to be the first to cross the Antarctic continent, he and his crew ended up on an even more difficult and incredible trek. It is an inspiring story that demonstrates Shackleton?s indomitable determination to survive, and ensure his crew?s survival, that turns this failed expedition into a remarkable tale of heroism. Lansing's gripping narrative will make it difficult to put down.
