Read about the Endurance and the Aurora
on August 28, 2017
The story is interesting, but you have to get through the journal/log style of writing -- all the longitude, latitude, temperature readings and such. It's good to hear it in Shackleton's own words. What separates this book from the other well known book called "Endurance" is that Shackleton explains the fate of the Aurora which was the supply ship for the south pole. The Aurora went on assuming her duties not knowing the fate of Shackleton and his men. The Aurora also got caught in the ice, but was eventually freed and floundered until saved.
