This story based on the photographs of Hurley and the diaries of several of the members of the expedition, including Worsley , Hurley, Shackleton and OrdeLees retells in their own words perhaps the greatest ocean adventure of all times. In Shackleton's own words, `We had reached the naked soul of man.' The shipwreck on the Weddell Sea ice, the open boat trip to Elephant Island, the epic voyage of the James Caird with its six crew to South Georgia, the crossing of South Georgia by Shackleton, Creen and Worsley, and the wintering of the 22 left behind on Elephant Island makes a story of epic proportions. Included in the photography using the original Hurley plates are recollections from descendants and up to date footage offilm of the ocean and the ice. A DVD that should be shown in every High School. It epitomizes, courage, endurance, compassion and humanity. This is one of the most outstanding DVD's I have ever purchased.

I have given this dvd as a gift to more than one person I love, when I have known that his or her own spirit of courage, tenacity or adventure will resonate with this amazing account of Ernest Shackleton and The Endurance. How few opportunities there are to SEE with our own eyes the recorded grainy bits of black and white footage in life of true adventurers of times long past, and men tested by adversity and obstacles unimaginable to us. There is a point in the narrative at which I always cry, moved by the heart of the leader intent on rescuing all his men alive. And always I come to the end of the account and my life feels so very small, but I am awed at the spirit of man, the courage, the ability to endure, endure, endure... and the banding together of souls in all its beauty and ugliness, when men are battling together to conquer something... be it enemy, elements, fear, or death. An incredibly moving tribute to real-life adventurers and survivors, and the leadership of a particular man, and a piece of history often forgotten. I cannot recommend it highly enough for those who love to learn of such things.
