This impressive and wonderfully illustrated book is based on Ernest Shackleton’s exciting diary entries. His ship, Endurance, which had been especially constructed for this voyage set sail after a huge amount of equipment was placed on board.
On the spreads you will find information about the construction of the Endurance, which material was used, which equipment was boarded and what jobs the crew had. Moreover, you can follow the travel route and the events during this stunning expedition by pictures, maps and explicit information on the pages.
