Shackleton's Boat Journey: The Narrative from the Captain of the 'Endurance'by Frank Arthur A. Worsley
F.A. Worsely was the skipper of the Endurance, the ship used by Sir Ernest Shackleton in his 1914-1916 expedition to Antarctica, and this is his account of that perilous trip. The Endurance was crushed by ice, and the ship's party of twenty-eight drifted on an ice floe for five months, finally reaching an uninhabited island. From there Shackleton, Worsley, and four others sailed in a small boat to South Georgia, an island eight hundred miles away, to find rescue.
