In August 1914, Ernest Shackleton’s ship the Endurance embarked upon a fateful trip, setting sail for Antarctica. His goal? To cross the last uncharted continent on foot. Yet, five months after sail, and after forging through a thousand miles of pack ice, the Endurance became locked—and later crushed—within an island of unrelenting ice. Shackleton’s legendary struggle for survival (and that of his 27 men) ensued—to create a voyage of miraculous levels of heroism and endurance, as his ship was so appropriately named.
Endurance is a great fit for this month of January. Prep a mug of hot tea, keep your fireplace crackling, grab a cozy blanket and be gripped by this harrowing story of adventure and survival. (You’ll be extra grateful for the warmth surrounding you.) We hope you’ll join us
