Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage - Alfred Lansing - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage:

How the castaways survived on the ice.

My favorite quote from Sir Ernest Shackleton:

"Difficulties are just things to overcome, after all."

Questions to ponder while reading Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage:

Could you have kept your spirits up?

Can you live on grit alone?

My review of the book:

I can't believe they lived.

I got frostbite reading this.

One of the best survival stories out there.
