South

A Journal of the Endurance Voyage

South by Ernest Shackleton
Not available
One of the greatest tales of survival ever written, this is the true story of the Shackleton Expedition to the Antarctic - a company of hand-picked men for whom exploration led to frozen calamity. Captain Ernest Shackleton was an expert Arctic explorer and a veteran of Scott's expedition to the North Pole when he sailed the Endurance toward Antarctica, but only one day's journey from the continent, the ship became trapped in ice.

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.
