In August of 1914, Earnest Shackleton and a crew of 27 men attempted to cross Antarctica for the first time in history. Their ship, The Endurance, is crushed by ice masses, leaving the whole crew stranded in the ice-ridden wasteland. The crew's journals, as well as other logs and documents, bring to life the harrowing tale of Shackleton's inspiring leadership and the eventual rescue of the entire crew. More than 40 black-and-white photographs that were taken throughout the expedition are reproduced.
