Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage by Alfred Lansing
« on: October 24, 2021, 08:17:23 PM »
I listened to this audiobook recently, amazing true story of overcoming terrible situations and persevering against the odds when an Antarctic expedition ran into problems. 

I highly recommend this book. 

ISBN-10:  0465062881

ISBN-13:   ‎978-0465062881

Seems to be very popular now, I heard about it on a YouTube channel, I think.

Definitely, it's amazing they survived.

Each part of their saga is remarkable.

I would like to see the documentary, I did find pictures from the expedition, including video of the ship being crushed in the ice.

I don't remember the title of that documentary.  I watched it in an IMAX theater in the Minnesota History Museum.

Read the book "Endurance" 40 or 50 years ago.  One the best books ever on "get r done".
Like the picture of the stork swallowing a frog with his hands around the storks neck "Never give up, never, never give up".
The mental images of what they went through are still in my memory.
Shackleford died of a heart attack a few years later on another expedition if I remember correctly.

I am in the pink when sawing cedar.

"Endurance", a great book.  Like my dad used to say, "that's when men were men".
