In 1911 Roald Amundsen beat Robert Falcon Scott to the South Pole, and Scott and his colleagues all died on the return journey. Ernest Shackleton, who had served with Scott on a previous expedition, decided that crossing Antarctica from sea to sea was the last great unattempted journey on the continent. His Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914-17 was a failure. But perhaps because it failed, with Shackleton not only surviving but bringing his crew back alive, the expedition became more famous than many of those adventurous voyages that succeeded. After reaching the Weddell Sea off the c

In 1914, as Europe braces for an unfathomably deadly war, explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton sets sail for Antarctica to do the impossible: traverse the continent. He has a ship (the aptly named Endurance), a head brimming with optimism, and 28 men willing to follow him on an expedition across some of the most treacherous terrain on the planet. But Shackleton's optimism doesn't last long. Despite his experience in the Antarctic, disaster strikes early on when the Endurance is trapped in packed ice and slowly crushed, forcing Shackleton and his men off the ship and stranding them in a sea of i
L'Odyssée de l'Endurance by Ernest Henry Shackleton ( Book )
10 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in French and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Paul-Emile Victor, préfacier du présent ouvrage, aimait à rappeler que s'il avait consacré sa vie à l'exploration des régions polaires, c'était pour avoir lu un jour la relation de voyage de Shackleton à bord de l' " Endurance " : à ses yeux le plus grand récit d'aventures vécues qui ait été publié en ce siècle - rien de moins. Certes Shackleton, confronté à des difficultés inouïes, aura échoué à réaliser son rêve. Mais la chronique de cet échec (deux ans de dérive à travers les glaces et une tentative de sauvetage par mer d'une audace parfaitement folle) vaut toutes les victoires
