The Lost Men
The Harrowing Saga of Shackleton's Ross Sea Party
The untold story of the last odyssey of the heroic age of Antarctic explorationPainstakingly researched and electrifyingly written . . . a brutal and inspiring tale of adventure and endurance. (Mens Journal)
Sir Ernest Shackletons 1914 Antarctic endeavor is legend, but for sheer heroism and tragic nobility, nothing compares to the saga of the Ross Sea party. This crew of explorers landed on the opposite side of Antarctica from the Endurance with a mission to build supply depots for Shackletons planned crossing of the continent. But their ship disappeared in a gale, leaving ten inexperienced, ill-equipped men to trek 1,356 miles in the harshest environment on earth. Drawing on the mens own journals and photographs, The Lost Men is a masterpiece of historical adventure, a book destined to be a classic in the vein of Into Thin Air.
A gripping story embracing both tragedy and triumph. (The New York Times Book Review)
