Editorial Reviews

From AudioFile

Shackletons Antarctic voyage aboard ENDURANCE is one of the most extraordinary tales of heroism and determination in the history of exploration. Lansing draws on the journals of the crew: their nobility of purpose, their disagreements, their determination, their irrepressible cheer, and their admiration for and unwavering belief in their commander. Simon Prebble gives each a unique voice, from Cockney to Scot. He ambles engagingly through the calmer moments of the narrative and grabs the listener by the lapels when the going gets rough, as it did more times than the ordinary person would be able to endure. Even if you know the story well, Prebbles narration will bring to life the despair, elation, and sheer will of these men to survive, and to triumph, together. M.S.W.

From the Inside Flap

'A superb account of the greatest survival story of our time' - Chris Bonington The story of Ernest Shackleton's epic journey to cross the Antarctic overland has now been turned into four hours of gripping television with Kenneth Branagh playing Shackleton.

Shackleton's mission failed, but the resulting adventure became one of the most celebrated accounts of man's survival against unbelievable odds.

In August 1914 the Endurance set sail for the South Atlantic. In October 1915, still half a continent away from their objective, the ship was trapped, then crushed in the ice. Twelve hundred miles away from land, drifting on ice packs, Shackleton and his men survived the next five months on a diet of dogs, penguins and seals. When the ship eventually sank they were forced to escape by lifeboat. Shackleton then travelled another 850 miles in an open boat across the stormiest ocean in the world to reach help. Every single man got home safely.

Miraculously, throughout this ordeal, the expedition's photographer, Frank Hurley, protected his negatives and photographs from destruction. It is these extraordinary photographs that are among those produced in this illustrated edition of Alfred Lansing's harrowing and inspiring classic.
