I'm in the midst of a hugely enjoyable 'read lots of books about polar exploration' marathon - and having 'done' Scott, moved on to Shackleton. We are sorry. The unbelievable and tragical story of the Ernest Shackleton's expedition to Antarctica and their struggle to survive for an interminable period of time. Always cold. Publication date 2003 Topics Shackleton, Ernest Henry, Sir, 1874-1922, Endurance (Ship), Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition (1914-1917) Publisher New York : Carroll & Graf Collection This is because of the constant distress and horrible conditions the crew experienced for such a long time. There are always some details that make the story just a little less dramatic than in the made-for-TV movie. Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage – by Alfred Lansing Date read: 5/18/19. Yet at times the account feels somewhat under-detailed, with little to no account given to the short glorious life of Mrs. Chippy, the threat of Elephant Island survivors considering cannibalism, the lack of Polar Medals given to several members of the crew after the journey due to their lack of effort and/or insubordination, and various other noteworthy details. The expedition’s ship, the Endurance, froze into the ice pack off the Antarctic coast. I recommend this book to those who want to throw themselves into another world, albeit a world cold, wet, icy and filled with fear, exhaustion and hunger. * http://jqueryui.com Omar M Khateeb's Mind Loom Review (Subscribe on Youtube). .vas-hidecomponent{display:none}.vas-checkbox-column.a-box{border:0}.vas-checkbox-container .vas-checkbox{margin-left:15px;top:47%;display:block!important}.vas-preferences-column{border-left:1px solid #ddd}.vas-preferences-container{border:0;padding:0 15px}.vas-checkbox-container-alert-on{border-color:red}#vas-preferences-button .a-button-text{font-size:16px}#vas-ppd-mobile-twister-service-options .vas-ppd-mobile-service-heading,#vas-ppd-mobile-twister-service-options .vas-ppd-mobile-service-heading span,.vas-font-weight-normal{font-weight:400!important}#vas-ppd-fake-twister-mobile .a-button-stack .vas-ppd-twister-button{margin-bottom:9px}#vas-ppd-fake-twister-mobile .a-button-inner{width:100%}#vas-ppd-fake-twister-mobile .vas-ppd-nocopypaste{-o-user-select:none;-ms-user-select:none;-moz-user-select:none;-webkit-user-select:none;user-select:none}#vas-ppd-mobile-twister-service-options .vas-twister-service-option-disabled{pointer-events:none;opacity:.5;filter:alpha(opacity=50)}#vas-ppd-mobile-twister-service-options .vas-mobile-twister-whatsincluded-section ul{margin-top:5px}#vas-ppd-mobile-twister-service-options .vas-mobile-twister-whatsincluded-section ul li{list-style:disc;border:none}#vas-ppd-mobile-twister-service-options #vas-mobile-twister-include #vas-mobile-twister-whatsincluded ul{margin-top:5px}#vas-ppd-mobile-twister-service-options #vas-mobile-twister-include #vas-mobile-twister-whatsincluded ul li{list-style:disc;border:none}#vas-ppd-mobile-twister-service-options #vas-mobile-twister-include i{top:35px}.vas-twister-product-price-update{display:none}#vas-twister-loading{top:0;left:0;position:absolute;width:100%;height:100%;background-color:#fff;opacity:.8;filter:alpha(opacity=80);z-index:25}#vas-twister-loading #vas-twister-spinner{background:url(https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/G/01/amazonui/loading/loading-4x._V1_.gif) 50% 50% no-repeat;top:0;left:0;position:absolute;width:100%;height:100%}.vas_product_offer_update_description{display:block;margin-top:5px}.vas-checkbox{display:none!important}#vas-valueProp-service-options{margin-top:15px!important;margin-bottom:10px!important}#vas-valueProp-service-options ul{margin-top:5px}#vas-valueProp-service-options ul li{list-style:disc;border:none}#vas-valueProp-service-options ul li a{font-size:1px}#vas-valueProp-service-options #vas-valueProp-service-block{margin-bottom:15px!important}#vas-valueProp-service-options .vas-valueProp-service-name{font-size:15px!important;font-weight:700}#vas-valueProp-service-options .valueProp-service-price{float:right;font-size:15px!important}#vas-valueProp-service-options .vas-valueProp-bullets{font-size:13px!important}#vas-valueProp-click-through-mobile{padding-bottom:10px} Description of Endurance by Alfred Lansing ePub “Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage” is an incredible story of hope, perseverance, and yes, endurance.
