An incredible account of hardship and determination., 10 Jan. 2001
A fascinating account of a struggle for survival against the odds. This books concentrates on the final stages of Shackleton & Co.s desparate crossing between Elephant Island and South Georgia, a magnificent feat, and the final mountaineering challenge undertaken to effect the rescue of expeditions members. A book that all, sailors, mountaineers and other adventurers should read. One I will certainly read again.
