Through storm, burning cold, dehydration, disease, all 28 men returned after 22 “unexpected” months at sea; the book’s a success, too—no small feat for an oft-told tale.

Synopsis

A graphic novel retelling of the greatest feat of leadership and survival ever recorded in graphic novel form. When the mighty Endurance becomes trapped in the Weddell Sea, Ernest Shackleton's dream to cross the Antarctic becomes a fight to save the twenty-seven souls that set sail with him. With five others, he takes to the sea in the lifeboat, James Caird, and sets a course for South Georgia, 800 miles away across treacherous waters. This brings to life the ceaseless struggle against the harshest environment on Earth, and culminates in the most dramatic real-life open boat journey in the history of mankind. Full color illustrations by David Butler. Ages ten and up.
