A Journal of the Endurance Voyage
Marooned for ten months, their ship destroyed by crushing ice, the expedition members contended with inhuman cold, diminishing supplies, and the simple perils of mistakes resulting from boredom and isolation. Through it all, this British expedition kept its courage and its goals intact - and this book, written by Sir Ernest Shackleton himself, tells the whole story from the perspective of a leader who held mutiny at bay and kept starvation from the door.
This New Albion Press edition contains 15 of the original expedition photographs by expedition photographer Frank Hurley, as well as 6 maps of the journey by expedition leader Sir Ernest Shackleton, a Glossary of Terms, and a timeline of the expedition's events. The book can be annotated, searched, and highlighted by the reader.
