Endurance by Frank Arthur Worsley

You seriously mean to tell me that the ship is doomed? asked Frank Worsley, commander of the Endurance , stuck impassably in Antarctic ice packs. What the ice gets, replied Sir Ernest Shackleton, the expeditions unflappable leader, the ice keeps. It did not, however, get the ships twenty-five crew members, all of whom survived an eight-hundred-mile voyage across sea, land, and ice to South Georgia, the nearest inhabited island. First published in 1931, Endurance tells the full story of that doomed 1914-16 expedition and incredible rescue, as well as relating Worsleys further adventures fighting U-boats in the Great War, sailing the equally treacherous waters of the Arctic, and making one final (and successful) assault on the South Pole with Shackleton. It is a tale of unrelenting high adventure and a tribute to one of the most inspiring and courageous leaders of men in the history of exploration.
