On 1 August 1914, on the eve of World War I, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his hand-picked crew embarked in HMS Endurance from London's West India Dock, for an expedition to the Antarctic. It was to turn into one of the most breathtaking survival stories of all time. Even as they coasted down the channel, Shackleton wired back to London to offer his ship to the war effort. The reply came from the First Lord of the Admiralty, one Winston Churchill: "Proceed". And proceed they did. When the Endurance was trapped and finally crushed to splinters by pack ice in late 1915, they drifted on an ice floe for five months, before getting to open sea and launching three tiny boats as far as the inhospitable, storm-lashed Elephant Island. They drank seal oil and ate baby albatross (delicious, apparently.) From there Shackelton himself and seven others- -the author among them--went on, in a 22-foot open boat, for an unbelievable 800 miles, through the Antarctic seas in winter, to South Georgia and rescue. It is an extraordinary story of courage and even good-humour among men who must have felt certain, secretly, that they were going to die. Worsley's account, first published in 1940, captures that bulldog spirit exactly: uncomplaining, tough, competent, modest and deeply loyal. It's gripping, and strangely moving. --Christopher Hart -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Format: Taschenbuch
Frank Worsley's description of the boat journey he made with Shackleton and two other crewmen of the Endurance is remarkable not only for the adventure it tells, but for the language it is told in and the largeness of spirit that it demonstrates. When I first read this--a battered copy in the local library--I felt that every teenager in the United States should have the opportunity to experience the strength of character, understanding and fine prose style Worsley demonstrates in this tremendously exciting adventure story. His description of Shackleton's leadership qualities is insightful and generous. His own navigational miracle of bringing this tiny craft across the wildest seas in the world to the relatively small island of South Georgia is understated. This book is inspirational in the best sort of honest and clear way. I have been to Elephant Island and S. Georgia and my admiration is increased by the experience.

To find yourself having no choice but to set out to sea, in the middle of a south polar winter, with the only hope of rescue 800 miles off would reduce most people to despair. It's a mark of the stuff that these men were made of that they reached their goal, intact, then went back to rescue their comrades. I find it difficult to imagine how they navigated in those low latitudes, in a roiling sea, howling gales and limited visibility; Worsley tells you how... He also has the writers' gift of transporting you from your comfortable chair to the freezing, wet, cramped conditions of their boat - and yet still bringing to life the thoughts and feelings of this rare breed of men. As Olivia Tsosie says, it should be recommended reading for all teenagers, so they understand what life can dole out and yet you can still turn the tables on fate, instead of sitting back and letting life ride roughshod over you.

There are longer and "prettier" books out there of this amazing tale, most of which I own, but for me, it all started with Frank Worsley's little book. None read as fine as his. He speaks in the language of the time and hooks you on words like "hoosh" and "Yoicks", but never loses you. It's a very personal account that on occassion reads a little flat because he is recording a journey. On the other hand, during the worst of their wear, which is most of the time, he shares his take on everyone's thoughts and then gives you his own. I am rarely "goosebumped" by any author but Worsley finds a way. I've only read it once but it is "dog-eared" beyond belief thanks to all the friends I have passed it on to!

Can't shake Worsley's Supurb Antarctic account of "Shackleton's Boat Journey"? Read Alexander's "The Endurance." Your dreams of adventure will continue. I also recommend switching your sea legs to the land. LIFE WITH NOAH is truly a portrait of another time and place set in the world's most ancient mountains, the Adirondacks. Not only is it a fitting tribute to any reader who feels a unique kinship with the land but a story of survival among mountains, pristine lakes, hidden streams, delicate, timeless beauty as well as an ever vanishing way of life with each passing year. Whether it be Antarctic or mountain ventures with the hermit of Cold River you will find great reading in these books.

For anyone fascinated with stuff connected with Shackleton's famous Antarctic explorations, this book is a must. It focusses on the boat journey, that is, the last part of the whole incredible journey, and it is written by Worsley himself, which means the man because of whose amazing expertise 6 men were able to cross an area which must be one of the oceans' worst in a tiny 7 metre boat. Truly amazing.
