Abstract A renowned marine biologist presents this extraordinary firsthand account of the discovery of Ernest Shackleton's Endurance--a century to the day after Shackleton's death--that captures the intrepid spirit that joins two mariners across the centuries, both of whom accomplished the impossible.
Abstract November 21, 1915: After sailing more than ten thousand miles from Norway to the Weddell Sea, the Endurance finally succumbed to the surrounding ice. Shackleton and his crew watched in silence as the ships stern disappeared into the frigid sea, then spent five months marooned on the ice in its wake. Subsequent missions to find the Endurance failed over the next century. Bound, director of exploration on the 2019 and 2022 expeditions to locate the Endurance, chronicles the two expeditions into what Shackleton called "the worst portion of the worst sea on Earth." -- adapted from jacket
