Through the diaries of team members and interviews with survivors, Lansing reconstructs the months of terror and hardship the Endurance crew suffered. In October of 1915, there "were no helicopters, no Weasels, no Sno-Cats, no suitable planes. Thus their plight was naked and terrifying in its simplicity. If they were to get out--they had to get themselves out." How Shackleton did indeed get them out without the loss of a single life is at the heart of Lansing's magnificent true-life adventure tale. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
Riveting! Courage and ego with a side dish of terror. You can almost imagine yourself in the boat with Shackleton, wet and cold, despairing one minute and jubilant the next. Read morePublished 3 hours ago by Amazon Customer
