Product Description

The true story of the 1914 shipping expedition to the Artic that failed and whose twenty-two members survived against incredible circumstances. This book describes the unbelievable events surrounding the crew of the Endurance who set out to cross the Antartic overland in August 1914. Shipwrecked half a continent away from their base, all the men survived even after a 1000 mile voyage in an open boat across the most treacherous ocean on the globe and an overland trek through forbidden glaciers and mountains. The nobility of these men and their indefatigable will to fight back and survive shines through. James Dobson calls this story "a metaphor of the Christian experience."
