Endurance Shackleton's Incredible Voyage by Alfred Lansing

Endurance By Alfred Lansing

The astonishing saga of polar explorer Ernest Shackleton's survival for over a year on the ice-bound Antarctic seas, as Time magazine put it, "defined heroism." Alfred Lansing's scrupulously researched and brilliantly narrated book -- with over 200,000 copies sold -- has long been acknowledged as the definitive account of the Endurance's fateful trip. To write their authoritative story, Lansing consulted with ten of the surviving members and gained access to diaries and personal accounts by eight others. The resulting book has all the immediacy of a first-hand account, expanded with maps and illustrations especially for this edition.

    Just got the book (paperback from B&N) and looking forward to diving into it. However, I'll be very interested in what others think of James Dobson's (Focus on the Family) involvement in the 1999 re-publication, including his writing of the foreword and afterword and his royalties going to FotF.

    Looking forward to it - I really enjoyed this one. I didn't have the Dobson intro, either.

    Megan can have my space. I've been dealing with a ruptured appendix for almost a month and have not been able to read the book. Hopefully next month will be less hectic.
