Synopsis

Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Antarctic Expedition by Anita Ganeri

In October 1914, the explorer, Ernest Shakleton and a team of men, set out on the ship, Endurance, to cross Antarctica via the South Pole. A few months into their voyage, the ship became trapped in ice, eventually sinking.With little hope of rescue, Shakleton's crew lived on the ice, enduring freezing temperatures and with only the food they could catch from the sea. When the ice floes began to crack beneath them, the men undertook a treacherous journey in three small lifeboats across the icy, stormy sea, eventually landing on Elephant Island - a place where no-one lived or was ever likely to visit...Retold in vivid detail and illustrated with contemporary photographs and artefacts, this story recounts one of the most astonishing feats of exploration and human endeavor ever recorded.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
