This is Shackleton’s own account of his Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition (1914-17) which attempted a historic first crossing of the Antarctic continent. Their fight for survival in the Weddell Sea, following the sinking of their ship “Endurance” is a classic tale. This includes not only the account of their voyage into the Weddell Sea, subsequent sinking, escape to Elephant Island, and crossing of South Georgia, but also the trials of those left on Elephant Island as well as the Ross Sea party and their support of the expedition. This illustrated edition includes a great number of historic photos as well as present day.
