Weaving a treacherous path through the freezing Weddell Sea, they had come within eigh In Augustdays before the outbreak of the First World War, the renowned explorer Ernest Shackleton and a crew of twenty-seven set sail for the South Atlantic in pursuit of the last unclaimed prize in the history of exploration: Trivia About The Endurance: If you love stories of hope, bravery, and adventure read this book.


A great choice for adventuresome, inquisitive teenagers 14 years or older, or younger depending on their maturity. I loved this book. Drawing upon previously unavailable sources, Caroline Alexander gives us a riveting account of Shackleton’s expedition–one of history’s greatest epics of survival.

After 22 months in the Antarctic they were finally rescued.

Alexander’s The Bounty which I also loved. Soon the ship was crushed like matchwood, leaving the crew stranded on the floes. And she presents the astonishing work of Frank Hurley, the Australian photographer whose visual record of the adventure has never before ccaroline published comprehensively.

Alexander covers all the personalities and the major events and decisions. The mettle of which these explorers are made is other-worldly.

I am in awe of the men’s resourcefulness, their will to carry on day after day, their ability to navigate with maps and rare sightings of the sun.

Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage – but this is an absolutely outstanding addition to that list, for at least two excellent reasons. This was such a great read and what made it even better was her partnership with a national archive so that she could include the photos taken on the actual expedition.
