New book, 366 pages. In 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton set forth to make history with the first ever crossing of the Antarctic continent. On the eve of the First World War, Shackleton disappeared into the Weddell Sea aboard the Endurance, while a ship called the Aurora sailed into the Ross Sea on the opposite side of continent under the command of AEneas Mackintosh. The Ross Sea part, twenty eight strog, was there to create a lifeline of vital food and fuel depots to supply the epic crossing. Yet all went tragically wrong when the Aurora broke free of her moorings in an Antarctic gale and stranded ten men ashore, woefully equipped to perform their task. Left with little more than the clothing on their backs and scavanged equipment, the men vowed to carry on in the face of impossile odds. Meanwhile, the rest of the Aurora crew, cast adrift at the mercy of the elements, battled for survival. With little hope of rescue, the lost men struggled to save themselves and carry out their mission.
