This was a remarkable exhibition and one to remember when we think we have had a bad day Trivia About The Endurance: I found it very inspiring in terms of leadership and the never-say-die spirit.

I love that the author also wrote Mrs. Plus she included more pictures.

The only nitpicky comment I can make on this book is that it could have benefited from one or two more maps, aside from the single Antarctica map up front that squeezes the entire adventure onto one page. The fact that they made that open water journey in a life-boat over miles in the dead of winter is just ONE of the crazy and I mean NUTS things that they managed to do.

May 27, Rodolfo rated it it was amazing. Still, however, Alexander manages to add some new and fascinating information.

If you have bad luck you’ll get stuck in the ice. I recently read Nick Bertozzi’s graphic novel on Shackleton and the Endurance and was wanting to read a more thorough story on it. Not only is Caroline Alexander’s text beautiful be the photos are just st I read this book years ago before I ever joined Goodreads.

Alexander, who writes so ably and knowledgeably about polar exploration also recently penned The Race to the South Pole in National Geographic’s Sept issue. If you’re ever going to buy one book about polar exploration I think this is the one. I’m not sure why Shackleton expected great personal acclaim for this adventure.


Heather Stewart Informational Wow! I am in awe of the men’s resourcefulness, their will to carry on day after day, their ability to navigate with maps and rare sightings of the sun. I was so excited when I saw there was another Shackleton book out there. The best thing about this though carolind the story and the man at the center of it.

Thanks to Josh for the recommendation. This review was first published in This Need to Read I’m in love with this beautifully written text containing crewmen recollections. We had reached alrxander naked soul of man.

Atrapados En El Hielo

Hurley’s photos are wonderful. A must read for anyone interested in the polar expeditions of the early parts of the 20th century. I could have used a chart or a dramatis personae. The accompanying photographs—remarkable in themselves for surviving a journey in an open lifeboat alxander months buried in snow—help bring the story to life.

Not only is Caroline Alexander’s text beautiful be the photos are just stunning. She lives on a farm in New Hampshire. His goal was to be the first to travel across the continent of Antarctica on foot. I have always been drawn to the unbelievable story of Shackleton and his crew. One word for this book: I prefer Caroline Alexander’s writing style and more modern English over Aleexander.

Atrapados En El Hielo by Caroline Alexander (5 star ratings)

She is the curator of “Endurance: Five stars for the incredible story! We had ‘sufferedstarved and triumphed, grovelled down yet grasped at glory, grown bigger in the bigness of the whole. Carolie and try again. Remarkable photography taken from 8×10 glass plates in double digit sub-zero conditions, some of which was buried under ice for months at a time before the photographer retrieved the carolins to resurrect should he ever make it home.


Jace Hansen Summer Reading.

This is one of these stories when reality is more unbelievable than fiction! Caroline Alexander has written a superb, well-researched and absolutely gripping account of the journey and the subsequent epic survival of all the men against all odds once the ship sinks deep in the Weddel sea.

The original glass plate negatives, from which most of the book’s illustrations are superbly reproduced, were stored in hermetically sealed cannisters that survived months on the ice floes, a week in an open boat on the atrxpados seas, and several more months buried in the snows of a rocky outcrop called Elephant Island.

Their ordeal would last for twenty months, and they would make two near-fatal attempts to escape by open boat before their final rescue. View all 3 comments. Shakleton was an intelligent alexaner who kept his men busy with assigned duties that matched their skills when trying to survive the elements. These were some old-school tough, grizzled dudes though, and they persevered. It eventually sank and the twenty-eight member crew was forced to travel to an island where they knew there would be whalers that could help them return home.

The story of the next twenty months is an epic tale of survival against the odds.
