Publisher Comments:

In 1914, an expedition headed by Sir Ernest Shackleton set out to be the first to cross the continent of Antarctica. Shipwrecked and marooned for months on end, their ill-fated voyage became a triumphant story of indomitable courage and faith in the face of astounding obstacles. A bestseller since it was first published in 1959, Alfred Lansing's "Endurance" now features a foreword and afterword from Dr. James Dobson--inspiring every reader to persevere no matter how impossible the challenge.

Heather G, October 23, 2014 (view all comments by Heather G)
It's the most incredible adventure story ever told! The gripping tale of Sir Ernest Shackleton's "failed" attempt to reach the south pole 100 years ago, and how after shipwreck and all manner of adversity, he kept his stranded men alive for nearly two years on the ice, sailed the southern ocean in search of rescue in a laughably small skiff, hit Elephant Island spot on (with expert navigator Worsley), did a climbing traverse of the island in primitive -- by that point rotten -- gear, and rallied a crew to sail back for the rescue. Even if this is not normally your genre...even if you know nothing about polar exploration, or sailing, and have no idea what pemmican is....this is an unmissable story!
