In 1911, veteran explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton set out to lead the first expedition across Antarctica, the last unknown continent. Instead, his ship, the Endurance, became locked in sea ice, and for nine months, Shackleton fought a losing battle with the elements before the drifting ship was crushed, marooning him and his crew. This gripping first-hand account follows Shackleton and his men on their harrowing journey back to civilization: over 600 miles of unstable ice floes on foot, 850 miles of the worst seas in an open 22-foot boat, and then 20 miles of mountainous terrain to reach the nearest outpost of civilization. An astonishing story that explores the limits of human courage, Shackleton’s South ranks among history’s greatest adventures.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Sir Ernest Shackleton and his crew make today’s high-tech adventurers look like dilettantes…One of the most harrowing survival stories of all time.” Sebastian Junger, New York Times bestselling author of The Perfect Storm and War
“One of the great adventure stories…a rousing read.” New York Times
“Geoffrey Howard’s splendid rendition conveys the genuine drama of the story without succumbing to false dramatics. His Shackleton has a deep-voiced charm; he is witty, calm and, most important, masterly in a crisis. In short, Howard’s Shackleton sounds exactly as we imagine an explorer should sound.” AudioFile
“Howard’s reading conveys both the urgency and the hope as Shackleton makes decisions on cutting rations and killing dogs, where to camp and when to press on.” Kliatt
