This book grew on me until, with an intense rush of relief, it brought me to tears. With bravery, integrity, and fortitude beyond measure, this is more than just a survival story. Instead it reflects a unfathomable feat, only possible because of this crew’s immense ability to preserve and respect a brotherhood, a community, and a fellowship.

Their ship caught and crushed by pack ice, a 1914 Antarctic expedition is left stranded at the bottom of the world. Against incredible odds, leader Sir Ernest Shackleton leads every one of this men to safety, first over the ice, then around it in their tiny rowboats. Despite its age (originally published in 1959) this is still the most thrilling account of the best survival story in history.

Fantastic, true story of human endurance. Not for young children.

An absolute classic that everyone should read. These men proved that what thee human spirit can accomplish is truly amazing.

(Side note: you might want to read this in the middle of a long, hot summer, when you'll appreciate the cold more.)

This was a riveting survival story, similar to Unbroken in its intensity. Highly recommended!
