Legendaarisen H. M. S. Endurancen tutkimusmatka Antarktikselle on tarina johon jokaisen pitää tutustua. Laiva juuttui jäihin ja rikkoutui jäiden puristuksissa. Vuosi oli 1914. Loput tarinasta kannattaa lukea kirjasta.
Frank A. Worsley was the Captain of the H. M. S. Endurance, the ship used by the legendary explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton in his 1914-16 expedition to the Antarctic. On its way to the Antarctic continent the Endurance became trapped and then crushed by ice, and the ship's party of twenty-eight drifted in an ice floe for five months. Finally reaching an uninhabited island, Shackleton, Worsley and four others sailed eight hundred miles in a small boat to the island of South Georgia, an astounding feat of navigation and courage. All hands survived this ill-fated expedition; as Worsley writes, 'By self-sacrifice and throwing his own life into the balance, (Shackleton) saved every one of his men...although at times it looked unlikely that one could be saved.'
