Endurance
Endurance tells the story of the Antarctic Exploring expedition of Ernest Shackleton, attempting to cross the continent of Antarctica in 1912. This expedition sets of for a great accomplishment, and although their accomplishments where still amazing, the crew never really makes it onto the continent as they get beset in Sea Ice in the Weddingsea. As they struggle and wait, the ship starts to moan and gets crushed by the ice, forcing the entire crew to abandon ship and search for a way back home.. across the Drake Passage, with only a rescue boat at hand.
The book will grip you and make you feel cold, even when sitting in the sunshine of a warm country..
