In August 1914, at the height of the heroic age of Antarctic exploration, Sir Ernest Shackleton sets off from England with a team of explorers. They plan to be the first men to walk across the Antarctic continent. But soon their ship, Endurance, is crushed in deadly pack ice! Now Shackleton and his 27 men are stranded on the ice floes in the middle of the frozen sea. Courageously, they begin planning their escape. No one can rescue them. They will have to save themselves… Meredith Hooper, winner of the prestigious Antarctica Service Medal, vividly brings to life a timeless story of survival in this dramatically illustrated picture book.
“A gripping account of how Shackleton cheated death, and saved his men against all the odds. Highly recommended.” Alexandra Shackleton
“The story is vividly told and conveys a real sense of the appalling realities of blinding cold, weakness, thirst and fear that Shackleton and his men had to face.” Financial Times
“This is a great book for any child who dreams of being an explorer.” Northern Echo
