In August 1914, as World War I began, Ernest Shackleton and a small band of explorers sailed for Antarctica aboard a ship called "Endurance." Few expeditions have been more aptly named -- and few leaders more courageous or inspirational. For two years, Shackleton and his men battled the elements in a saga that nearly defies description. Amazingly, not a man was lost...but their extraordinary feat was eclipsed by the Great War, and for three quarters of a century was all but forgotten. review >>>> The book also talked about other Antarctic expeditions from the era of exploration. Great pictures of Antarctica and historic photos of other Antarctic expeditions. 216 crisp pp, a kilo packed for post to you.
