About this book

Eighty miles short of their destination, Ernest Shackleton and his crew of 27 were trapped on their ship, Endurance, in the ice floes for 20 months in the freezing Weddell Sea. They would make two near-death attempts to escape by open boat. Drawing on previously unavailable sources, Caroline Alexander's account of the expedition - one of history's greatest epics of survival - is riveting. Included is the work of the Australian photographer, Frank Hurley, whose stunning visual record of the ordeal was, amazingly, preserved. Together, text and image re-create the terrible beauty of Antarctica and the crew's struggle to stay alive, a miracle achieved largely through Shackleton's inspiring leadership. An unforgettable story, published in conjunction with the American Museum of Natural History's landmark exhibition.
