- Shackleton's Incredible Voyage
- Written by: Alfred Lansing
- Narrated by: Simon Prebble
- Length: 10 hrs and 20 mins
In August of 1914, the British ship Endurance set sail for the South Atlantic. In October, 1915, still half a continent away from its intended base, the ship was trapped, then crushed in the ice. For five months, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men, drifting on ice packs, were castaways in one of the most savage regions of the world.
One of the best stories ever, plus great narrator

Absolutely incredible journey ! Really interesting and likely something I wouldn't have picked up on my own. This was my first audio book I have ever listened to, I thought it was a great experience and have since listened to other books ! 10/10 would recommend !
