Endurance

By Alexander, Caroline




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. For the next ten months they waited for the ice to break, but it never did, instead crushing the Endurance in its flows, leaving the crew stranded. With remarkable unpublished photographs of Frank Hurley.

ALEXANDER, CAROLINE

Alfred A. Knopf, New York: 1999. Softcover. Good condition. In August 1914, days before the outbreak of the First World War, the renowned explorer Ernest Shackleton and a crew of twenty-seven set sail for the South Atlantic in pursuit of the last unclaimed prize in the history of exploration: the first crossing on foot of the Antarctic continent. Weaving a treacherous path through the freezing Weddell Sea, they had come within eighty-five miles of their destination when their ship, Endurance, was trapped fast in the ice pack. Soon the ship was crushed like match wood, leaving the crew stranded on the floes. Their ordeal would last for twenty months, and they would make two near-fatal attempts to escape by open boat before their final rescue. Drawing upon previously unavailable sources, Caroline Alexander gives us a riveting account of Shackleton's expedition--one of history's greatest epics of survival ISBN: 0375404031.

Alexander, Caroline

London: Bloomsbury Publishing, 1998. 235 x 210 mm, x + 214 pp, illustrated with b&w photographs, map, bibliographical references. Upper edge lightly foxed. Cloth-backed papered boards. 'With the remarkable unpublished photographs of Frank Hurley' (front cover of the dust-wrapper). This is an account of one of the greatest survival stories of all time. The story of Sir Ernest Shackleton's 1914 expedition which set of with a crew of 27 on the Endurance to be the first men to cross Antarctica. Within 80 miles of their destination the ship was trapped fast in pack ice. For ten months they waited for the ice to break but instead the Endurance was crushed, leaving the crew stranded. Caroline Alexander tells the story of the expedition and presents for the first time the visual record of Frank Hurley, whose glass-plate negatives were stored in hermetically sealed canisters that lasted five months on ice floes, a week in an open boat on the polar seas, and five months buried in the snows of Elephant Island. Towards the end of the ordeal, Hurley was forced to abandon his professional equipment and captured some of the most astonishing moments with a pocket camera and a single roll of Kodak film.. First edition.. Hardcover. Very Good/very good.

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1998. Reprint. Fifth printing, 1999. Hardcover. Good condition/Good. Hurley, Frank (Photographer). 211 pages. Illustrations. Map. Small damp stains at top and bottom edges. Gift notation on front endpaper. Some wear to DJ edges. Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton was a Polar explorer who led three British expeditions to the Antarctic, and one of the principal figures of the period known as the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration. After the race to the South Pole ended in December 1911 with Roald Amundsen's conquest, Shackleton turned his attention to the crossing of Antarctica from sea to sea, via the pole. To this end he made preparations for what became the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, 1914-17. Disaster struck this expedition when its ship, Endurance, became trapped in pack ice and was slowly crushed before the shore parties could be landed. The crew escaped by camping on the sea ice until it disintegrated, then by launching the lifeboats to reach Elephant Island and ultimately the inhabited island of South Georgia, a stormy ocean voyage of 720 nautical miles and Shackleton's most famous exploit. Drawing on previously unavailable sources, this riveting account of Sir Ernest Shackleton's 1914 expedition to Antarctica presents, for the first time, 150 images by Australian photographer Frank Hurley, whose stunning visual record of the ordeal was--amazingly--preserved.
