Customer Review

on 13 July 2004
This is an excellent book. It is the true story of Ernest Shackleton's journey to cross the Antarctic overland, but you probably knew that already!!

I can't think of a better book on the subject. Crammed with photos taken by Frank Hurley, 'Endurance' is a wonderfully researched account of this almost unbelievable story. Full credit must go to the writer of this account Alfred Lansing. He truly does a fantastic job and keeps the story pushing along at a terrific pace.
At times, it seems a work of fiction, such are the many amazing happenings on this trip of a lifetime. Once again, as in 'The Heart of the Antarctic', Shackleton shows that above all else the safety of his men was paramount.

Don't think about getting this book, just go for it! You won't regret it.
