Lansing, Alfred - Endurance: The Greatest Adventure Story Ever Told. Ted Smart, 2000? They had been on the ice exactly one week. In seven shorgt days they had gone from the well-ordered, even pleasant existance on board the Endurance to one of primitive discomfort, of unending wet and inescapable cold. A little more than a week before they had slept in their own warm bunks and eaten their meals in the cosy atmosphere around the mess table. Now they were crammed together in overcrowded tents, lying in reindeer or wollen sleeping bags on bare ice, or at best on old pieces of hard lumber. At mealtimes, they sat in the snow, and wach man ate out of an aluminium mug they called a pannican, into which everything was dumped at the same time. For untensils, each had a spoon, a knife - and his fingers. They were castaways in one of the most savage regions of the world, drifting they knew not where, without a hope of rescue, subsisting only so long as Providence sent them food to eat. 10" x 7¾", 288pp, illustrated wipe-clean boards, hardback. Illustrated throughout with monochrome photographs by Frank Hurley. Very good; complete with very good (minimal wear) wrapper.
