Save this audiobook for summer listening. Its great, and true, adventure story of Antarctic exploration will take you to frigid places on a hot day. When their ship was crushed by ice on the Southern Ocean, Shackleton led his entire party to safety across hundreds of miles of open sea more than a year later. Narrator Rupert Degas captures the spirit of the man: hearty, plainspoken, determined, and devoted to the welfare of his crew. His stoicism makes the rare moments of deep emotion--for example, when their ship, ENDURANCE, finally slips beneath the ice--even more affecting. While the scientific appendix may be less interesting to some listeners, Degas enhances it with a variety of voices. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2020]
