"Bound for Antarctica, where polar explorer Ernest Shackleton planned to cross on foot the last uncharted continent, the Endurance set sail from England in August 1914. In January 1915, after battling its way for six weeks through a thousand miles of pack ice and now only a day's sail short of its destination, the Endurance became locked in an island of ice. For ten months the ice-moored Endurance drifted northwest before it was finally crushed. But for Shackleton and his crew of twenty-seven men the ordeal had barely begun. It would end only after a near-miraculous journey by Shackleton and a skeleton crew through over 850 miles of the South Atlantic's heaviest seas to the closest outpost of civilization. This astonishing tale of survival by Shackleton and all twenty-seven of his men for over a year on the ice-bound Antarctic seas, as Time magazine put it, "defined heroism." Alfred Lansing's brilliantly narrated book has long been acknowledged as the definitive account of the Endurance's fateful trip"--… (mais)

I am astounded at the skill that Lansing exhibits in his writing. I am amazed at the story. Incredibly well-done. I had almost forgotten that words could make me see/feel like that.

Non fiction account of a 1915 attempted crossing of the South Pole. Sounds kinda boring. It was. ( )
  jamestomasino | Sep 11, 2021 |
GREAT audio narrator (Tim Piggot-Smith.) He really made the entire story exciting. ( )

One of the best adventure stories I have ever so far!

Written in 1959, Lansing's research & work is still recognized as the definitive account of Ernest Shackleton's ill-fated attempt to cross the continent of Antarctica. Written decades after the excursion, Lansing's account is filled with diary entries and survivor interviews recalling the ebbs and flows of the survival experience.

Against all odds and in the harshest environments known to man, "Endurance" is an encouraging tale of heroics - facing the brutal facts of the reality each day yet never losing hope that survival and rescue would come. The reader learns about hope, teamwork, collaboration, sacrifice, commitment, persistence and yes, endurance.

An emotional historical tale. Lessons for us all as we experience life's hardships
I give it 5 out of 5 stars - Absolutely loved it. Do not skip this one! ( )

The strap line of this book is "The harrowing tale of British explorer Ernest Shackleton's 1914 attempt to reach the South Pole, one of the greatest adventure stories of the modern age." I think that sums it up perfectly. Before reading this I had heard of Shackleton but didn't really know much about him or his expeditions. This book is remarkably well research and as soon as I got into it I just couldn't put it down even though I already knew the outcome. If this had been written as a movie script people would say it is too extreme to be believable and that no one could surive what they survived. There is no denying that part of my rating has to come down to the story but I feel it would be dishonest for me to rate it any lower than 5/5. ( )

The time for hesitation was past, and Shackleton swung himself over the side. Working furiously, he began to cut steps in the face of the cliff, descending slowly, a foot at a time. A bitter chill had come into the air, and the sun was nearly down. Gradually they were getting lower, but it was maddeningly slow progress. After thirty minutes, the ice-hard surface of the snow grew softer, indicating that the grade was not quite so steep. Shackleton stopped short. He seemed to realize all at once the futility of what he was doing. At the rate they were going it would take hours to make the descent. Furthermore, it was probably too late to turn back. He hacked out a small platform with the adz, then called to the others to come down. There was no need to explain the situation. Speaking rapidly, Shackleton said simply that they faced a clear-cut choice: If they stayed where they were, they would freeze-in an hour, maybe two, maybe more. They had to get lower-and with all possible haste. So he suggested they slide. Worsley and Crean were stunned-especially for such an insane solution to be coming from Shackleton. But he wasn’t joking…he wasn’t even smiling. He meant it-and they knew it. But what if they hit a rock, Crean wanted to know. Could they stay where they were, Shackleton replied, his voice rising. The slope, Worsley argued. What if it didn’t level off? What if there were another precipice? Shackleton’s patience was going. Again he demanded-could they stay where they were? Obviously they could not, and Worsley and Crean reluctantly were forced to admit it. Nor was there really any other way of getting down. And so the decision was made. Shackleton said they would slide as a unit, holding onto one another. They quickly sat down and untied the rope which held them together. Each of them coiled up his share to form a mat. Worsley locked his legs around Shackleton’s waist and put his arms around Shackleton’s neck. Crean did the same with Worsley. They looked like three tobogganers without a toboggan. Altogether it took a little more than a minute, and Shackleton did not permit any time for reflection. When they were ready, he kicked off. In the next instant their hearts stopped beating. They seemed to hang poised for a split second, then suddenly the wind was shrieking in their ears, and a white blur of snow tore past. Down…down…they screamed – not in terror necessarily, but simply because they couldn’t help it. It was squeezed out of them by the rapidly mounting pressure in their ears and against their chests. Faster and faster – down … down …down! Then they shot forward onto the level, and their speed began to slacken. A moment later they came to an abrupt halt in a snowbank. The three men picked themselves up. They were breathless and their hearts were beating wildly. But they found themselves laughing uncontrollably. What had been a terrifying prospect possibly a hundred seconds before had turned into a breath-taking triumph.
