About this item

Adrift on the Antarctic pack ice with no means of escape and no hope of rescue, Ernest Shackleton and his men are surely doomed. In August 1914, Ernest Shackleton and his men set sail for Antarctica, where he planned to cross the last uncharted continent on foot. In January 1915, his ship, the Endurance, became locked in pack ice and later, sank without a trace. To survive, Shackleton and his crew of 27 men must undertake a trial even more extreme than their planned crossing of the frozen continent. Their aim is to make it home against unbeatable odds, with only a life boat to cross the heavy seas of the South Atlantic - and the life-saving power of Shackleton's extraordinary leadership skills. Praise for Amundsen's Way & Into the White: "Joanna Grochowicz's narrative non-fiction brings to life characters and events without skimping on historical fact.
