"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"--… (més)

An amazing story, really well told. It was incredible what those men dealt with - even though I knew they all survived, I was in total apprehension every time they faced a new threat. Really easy to read, in spite of the tension. This is not normally my kind of book, but I'm glad it was recommended to me. ( )

Historian's retelling of the story of Shackleton's expedition, including the Ross Sea side that gets overlooked by most authors. ( )

Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage by Alfred Lansing
Love learning about the ship but they go overboard with all the technical information.
Ship gets stuck in ice at South Pole area and they winter in the polar nights, no sun.
They use seals blubber for oil to heat the vessel. Southern Shine, like Northern Lights, never realized they were there also.
they keep themselves entertained, they each take a few dogs to tend to, they are on the dogsled team but they can't even leave the ship in the dead of winter.
travel adventures, gramophone with no needles to play the unit,
Tragic of the sinking and how they are able to move westward on the ice with the dogs and have seals for food.
When they part into two groups you wonder who will be the one surviving if any.
Conditions are so brutal but the men are just so persistant.
Details are so descriptive and ways to keep themselves healthy, what treatments they use with regular things they have on hand.
Thought I'd be bored, at times I was, no women on board but the men keep the story going with things they are doing to stay alive and not freeze to death.
Surprised they didn't start eating one another.
Borrowed this book from Overdrive from my local library and this is my honest opinion. ( )

This was a great read!

Even after reading Shackleton's own official account (i.e. excluding his diary) of the voyage, Endurance explained a lot more of the difficulties and mindsets of the men. I think I recommend this over any single personal account.

It's also cool that even written in 1959 - Lansing was able to interview several of the sailors - the language was still more accessible than 1910s or 1920s journals. ( )

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.

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.
