    Description

    As war clouds darkened over Europe in 1914, a party led by Sir Ernest Shackleton set out to make the first crossing of the entire Antarctic continent via the Pole. But their initial optimism was short-lived as ice floes closed around their ship, gradually crushing it and marooning twenty-eight men on the polar ice. Alone in the world's most unforgiving environment, Shackleton and his team began a brutal quest for survival. And as the story of their journey across treacherous seas and a wilderness of glaciers and snow fields unfolds, the scale of their courage and heroism becomes movingly clear.

    This is a must read.

    If there were 10 books that one must read during their lifetime this is one. Leadership, courage and a level head with extraordinary leadership. Anyone who leads whether in business or a family can learn from Shackleton's way.

    A bit of a drag

    The narrator was excellent for this book but the story itself just wasn't good. I'd read Endurance by Lansing and that is much better. South is just hours and hours of reciting diary entries of latitude and longitude, temperature, and weather conditions. The second half is even worse. It's just a bunch of small arctic parties moving supplies from one depot to another depot and then to another. There doesn't seem to be much gained in the reading of this. If you want to know more about the actual voyage and voyagers, read "Endurance." If you want to know all the super boring scientific daily recordings for the entire three years of the trip, read this book.

    A REMARKABLE STORY OF COURAGE AND INNOVATION!

    Man's eternal drive to explore and understand the nature of his planetary space ship has never been more eloquently told. Shackleton's genius extends beyond the scientific. Nowhere do you find demonstrated the art of leadership than in the life story of Sir Earnest. A inspiring and rewarding read. LaMar M. Fox, M.D.

    Interesting Story, Little Dry Though

    So as someone who currently serves in the military and travels frequently, I've had this book on my radar for quite awhile. It's a great tale about stoicism, leadership, and staying upbeat when all the odds are against you. But the narrator doesn't vary his voice much if at all, so on longer drives it can get a little monotonous. Also, this might just be me, but there were times parts of the story were retold from a different perspective, and the book (I felt) didn't transition very well between POV's. So that was a little confusing. But overall it's a great story, and frankly should be covered more in history.

    Great narrator for a gripping story

    I've read several other accounts of this expedition, but hadn't previously gone straight to the source. Shackleton's writing is a bit drier and more occupied with meteorological detail than later descriptions of the journey, like Alfred Lansing's 1959 Endurance, but any reader who is used to nonfiction from the late 19th and early 20th centuries will easily adjust to the tone and get into the book. And, of course, it gets much more dramatic about 3 hours in, when the Endurance is crushed in the ice and sinks.

    Crossley's narration is fantastic, he really brings Shackleton's words to life. It feels like having SIr Ernest in the room with you, telling you his story.

    Not very captivating for me as a listener

    I tried listening to this story but it was so slow. I know this story and was expecting something a lot more interesting to listen too. I am not sure if the detail was so much that I felt like the author was trying too hard to paint a picture for the reader. I found my mind wandering and just could not get past a few pages. I suggest listening to the example first to know if you want to burn a credit on this.
