In August 1914, days before the outbreak of World War I, Shackleton and a crew of 27 set sail for the South Atlantic to become the first people to cross the Antarctic on foot. In the Wendell Sea, their ship was trapped in the ice and crushed like matchwood, leaving the crew stranded on the ice floes for 20 months. The text and pictures recreate the terrible beauty of Antarctica, the awful destruction of the ship, and the crew's heroic daily struggle to stay alive, a miracle achieved largely through Shackleton's inspiring leadership.
