SOUTH A Memoir of the Endurance Voyage

by | Read by Geoffrey Howard

Biography & Memoir • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1919

Explorer Ernest Shackleton's first-person account is the stuff of legend. While sailing in Antarctica in their ship, ENDURANCE, he and his men became locked in sea ice. The gripping tale of their subsequent voyage across 600 miles of ice floes and 850 miles of violent seas has entranced readers since it was first published after WWI. Now audiobook listeners have an opportunity to join the Shackleton expedition as it battles temperatures of minus 50 degrees and winds of 80 mph. Geoffrey Howard's splendid rendition conveys the genuine drama of the story without succumbing to false dramatics. His Shackleton has a deep-voiced charm; he is witty, calm and, most important, masterly in a crisis. In short, Howard's Shackleton sounds exactly as we imagine an explorer should sound.
