This is an account of the Shackleton boat journey. The journey began in August 1914 in London and the next the world knew of Shackleton was in May 1916, when three ragged men staggered into the whaling station at Grytviken on South Georgia. Written by the Captain of the Endurance, the ship used by Shackleton on his 1914-16 ill-fated journey, this book is a remarkable tale of courage and bravery in the face of extreme odds and a vivid portrait of one of the world's greatest explorers.

After years of preparation, the world's most experienced Antarctic explorer embarked on the most dramatic adventure of his life. Sir Ernest Shackleton had carefully picked crew and a stout, well-outfitted ship, the Endurance. But he had no radio, the world was at war, and at the edge of the Antarctic continent, the ship froze in the sea ice. After months of immobility, it was crushed. Then began an impossible journey. With three tiny boats, the crew worked their way across frozen the Antarctic Sea. This vivid book recounts the story of Shackleton's heroic voyage from South Georgia Island to Antarctica then back to South Georgia. It is a tribute to Shackleton and his crew's ability to fight for survival and one of the most harrowing adventures in history.

A new edition to mark the centenary Ernest Shackleton's epic 1916 journey across 1300 kms of hostile ocean in a tiny, leaking boat and unmapped ice and snow to reach a rescue station by British-Australian explorer Tim Jarvis, who recreated 'Shackleton's Epic' in 2012 Sir Edmund Hilary called it the greatest survival story of all time. In 1916, just months into Ernest Shackleton's third expedition to the South Pole, his ship, the Endurance, became trapped in pack ice and sank. With winter setting in and supplies running out, Shackleton faced a terrible quandary: should he and his crew stay on a tiny inhospitable stretch of Antarctic island and die waiting? Or should they make an almost certainly doomed journey, and sail in a lifeboat across 900 miles of the world's wildest ocean then trek over unmapped glaciers to reach help. Showing astonishing courage, Shackleton and a small band of men set off in an open boat. Even more astonishingly, they survived. Almost a century later, explorer and environmental scientist Tim Jarvis set out with a crew of five to replicate Shackleton's journey, using the same equipment, eating the same unpalatable food and facing the same hostile ocean conditions. Shackleton's Epic is the story of that trip -- the wretched lows and the occasional highs and the mental and physical toughness required to survive in one of the last wildernesses on earth. Moving between the past and the present, this is a must-read book for all Shackleton fans and lovers of epic adventure. 'Jarvis's tribute to Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic expedition had had a danger and heroism ... worthy of the original.' -- GUARDIAN (UK) '... bone-chilling and breathtakingly frightening ... a well-written, compelling read.' -- KIRKUS REVIEWS 'a ripping yarn' -- BRISBANE NEWS 'serves to show just how brave, skilled, resourceful and optimistic the original [explorers] had been ... Verdict: victory over adversity' -- HERALD SUN
