Mass Market Paperback
Through the diaries of team members and interviews with survivors, Lansing reconstructs the months of terror and hardship the Endurance crew suffered. In October of 1915, there "were no helicopters, no Weasels, no Sno-Cats, no suitable planes. Thus their plight was naked and terrifying in its simplicity. If they were to get out--they had to get themselves out." How Shackleton did indeed get them out without the loss of a single life is at the heart of Lansing's magnificent true-life adventure tale. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Excellent read. Hard to imagine a non-fiction, historical piece as a "page-turner" but this is about as close as one can get. Read morePublished 2 months ago by WM

I liked it, unfortunately the quality of the cd set itself is so bad I could really only hear about 4 of the disks. The others would not load properly.Published 4 months ago by Tory Handford
