In August 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton's ship Endurance set sail for the South Atlantic. The object of the expedition was to cross the Antarctic overland. In October 1915, still half a continent away from their intended base, the ship was trapped, then crushed, in ice. For five months, Shackleton and his men, drifting on ice packs, were castaways in one of the most savage regions of the world. This gripping account of Sir Ernest Shackleton's epic adventure, leading his men to safety, has sold over 300,000 copies in book form. Newly available on audio CD and narrated with great skill and tension by Tim Pigott-Smith, "Endurance" recreates one of the most astonishing feats of exploration and survival ever recorded.
