Entrapped in the Ice of the Weddell sea over an Antarctic winter, it is the story of how the crew survived; which they managed, despite the overwhelming odds against them. Shows brilliantly man's ability to endure against all hardships imaginable and his ability to succeed against impossible odds. The pictures alone, saved by the crew during the sinking of their ship, make this book worth purchasing. Even today with modern equipment and technology the chances of a voyage like this being sucessful are exceedingly slim. The South Georgian interior was not explored until some 40-50 years after Shackleton's journey. An epic adventure.
