Synopsis

In 1914, an expedition headed by Sir Ernest Shackleton set out to be the first to cross the continent of Antarctica. Shipwrecked and marooned for months on end, their ill-fated voyage became a triumphant story of indomitable courage and faith in the face of astounding obstacles.

A bestseller since it was first published in 1959, Alfred Lansing's Endurance now features a foreword and afterword from Dr. James Dobson—inspiring every reader to persevere no matter how impossible the challenge.
