This tense week-by-week, month-by-month reconstruction charts the incredible journey undertaken by his crew of 27 men through 850 miles of the southern Atlantic's heaviest seas.
Endurance

Endurance

by Caroline Alexander

In August 1914 Sir Ernest Shackleton and a crew of twenty-seven set sail aboard the Endurance bound for the South Atlantic - their goal to be the first explorers ever to cross Antarctica. Weaving a treacherous path through the icy Weddell Sea, they came within eighty miles of their destination when the ship became trapped in the ice pack.

The White Spider

The White Spider

by Harrer, Heinrich

The White Spider dramatically recreates not only the harrowing, successful ascent made by Harrer and his comrades in 1938, but also the previous, tragic attempts at a wall of rock that was recently enshrined in mountaineer Jon Krakauer's first work, Eiger Dreams. For a generation of American climbers, The White Spider has been a formative book--yet it has long been out-of-print in America. This edition awaits discovery by Harrer's new legion of readers.
