    More Information:

    Shackleton's own account of his attempt to make the first crossing of the Antarctic continent - 1800 miles sea to sea. The ill-fated expedition suffered severe hardships after their ship Endurance was crushed in the ice. Amazingly the entire expedition survived as a result of Shackleton's "supreme qualities of leadership."
