Shipwreck at the Bottom of the World: The Extraordinary True Story of Shackleton and the Endurance Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The harrowing story of the ill-fated Endurance, now in paperback.

In August 1914, Ernest Shackleton and 27 men sailed from England in an attempt to become the first team of explorers to cross Antarctica from one side to the other. Five months later and still 100 miles from land, their ship, Endurance, became trapped in ice. The expedition survived another five months camping on ice floes, followed by a perilous journey through stormy seas to remote and unvisited Elephant Island. In a dramatic climax to this amazing survival story, Shackleton and five others navigated 800 miles of treacherous open ocean in a 20-foot boat to fetch a rescue ship.

Shipwreck at the Bottom of the World vividly re-creates one of the most extraordinary adventure stories in history. Jennifer Armstrong narrates this unbelievable story with vigor, an eye for detail, and an appreciation of the marvelous leadership of Shackleton, who brought home every one of his men alive.

Synopsis:

Armstrong vividly describes how 28 men sailed from England in 1914 on the "Endurance" to become the first team of explorers to cross Antarctica. She continues the incredible story of their survival on the ship after encountering ice, storms, and remote islands.
