In August 1914, renowned explorer Ernest Shackleton and a crew of twenty-seven set sail for the South Atlantic in pursuit of the last unclaimed prize in the history of exploration: the first crossing on foot of the Antarctic continent. They came with in eighty-five miles of their destination when their ship, Endurance, was trapped fast in the ice pack, and the crew was stranded on the floes. Their ordeal lasted for twenty grueling months, and the group made two near-fatal attempts to escape by open boat before they were finally rescued. Drawing upon previously unavailable sources, Caroline Alexander gives us a riveting account of Shackleton's expedition. An extraordinary re-creation of the terrible beauty of Antarctica, the awful destruction of the ship, and the crew's heroic daily struggle for survival, The Endurance thrillingly describes one of the last great adventures in the brave age of exploration-perhaps the greatest of them all.… (més)

COMPELLING TALE OF HEROISM AND PRIVATION
The great majority of us would never agree to join an expedition such as the one described in Caroline Alexander’s account of the Shakelton-led party to cross Antarctica by land. Yet we are mesmerized by the feats of human endurance and courage we encounter in books such as this one. Not since reading John Krakauer’s “Into Thin Air” have I been brought to witness deeds and events such as these. If it wasn’t for Ms. Alexander’s obviously exhaustive research and Frank Hurley’s amazing photographs, a reader would be inclined to think that this was fiction.
Ms. Alexander, presents the story in such a way as to involve us in the lives of the men of this expedition by including details from original documents that serve to make each of them truly human and interesting. She blends these personalities into the fabric of the account, as they encounter one horrendous obstacle to survival after another. This is a story that you will think about for a long time after you’ve finished reading the book.

The start of the Shackleton Obsession (a subset of the Antarctica Obsession)

I read this book over the course of about 3 days. It was fascinating reading, and I read quickly so as to actually finish it. I considered how their travails compared to those endured by those who are successful in any endeavor. They were not successful in their goal of traversing Antarctica, but were successful in coming back without loss of life. I suppose that is because of the perseverance of their leadership.

The contrast in tenacity between their leader, and some who gave up is a striking lesson in how to fail. After giving up, chances of success diminish dramatically. But Shackleton did not give up. That he brought back all of the men alive is rare and extremely impressive. ( )

I read Caroline Alexander’s The Endurance, an account of the legendary 1914-1916 expedition accomplished by Ernest Shackleton and his men, while sampling a gift I’d received: “Shackleton Blended Malt Scotch Whisky…The Spirit Supplied to the 1907 British Antarctic Expedition.”

The 1907 expedition isn’t the one described in Alexander’s book, of course. Also, better whiskeys than Shackleton exist. Sipping it, though, can create a sensation that the man’s spirit has been infused into your own. Such accompaniment enhances time spent with him and his men at sea and on ice and seems to fortify the diary entries Alexander quotes extensively. The most diligent diarists inevitably get more attention than other crew members, not necessarily for the best. No matter. More than any other, the paramount contributor to this book is expedition photographer Frank Hurley. His pictures are many and breathtaking and do much to show the physical character of an enterprise in which men survived an experience that lies well near unfathomable. ( )

La exploración del Antártico, a comienzos del siglo XX, no se parecía a ninguna otra exploración en cualquier otro punto de la Tierra. No había feroces animales ni indígenas salvajes que cerraran el paso al explorador. El obstáculo esencial era puro y simple: vientos de hasta trescientos kilómetros por hora y temperaturas de hasta cincuenta grados centígrados bajo cero. La lucha se establecía entre el hombre y las fuerzas desatadas de la naturaleza, entre el hombre y los límites de la resistencia.
