Staff Reviews

This all-time classic is among the greatest works of non-fiction written in the last 100 years.  Building on detailed first-person accounts and an amazing seriesof 1914 photographs, Lansing chronicles Ernest Shackleton's doomed expedition to Antarctica and recounts the crew's thrilling, almost-unbelievable story of survival and endurance in the face of overwhelming odds.

— Steve L.


In 1914, an expedition headed by Sir Ernest Shackleton set out to be the first to cross the continent of Antarctica. Shipwrecked and marooned for months on end, their ill-fated voyage became a triumphant story of indomitable courage and faith in the face of astounding obstacles.

A bestseller since it was first published in 1959, Alfred Lansing's Endurance now features a foreword and afterword from Dr. James Dobson--inspiring every reader to persevere no matter how impossible the challenge.
