Adrift on the Antarctic pack ice with no means of escape and no hope of rescue, Ernest Shackleton and his men are surely doomed. Whether they drown, freeze or starve to death, no-one will ever learn of their fate.
The story of Shackleton’s 1914 Imperial Trans-Antarctic expedition is an extraordinary tale of unimaginable suffering and courage. When the Endurance is crushed in the pack ice of the Weddell Sea and sinks without a trace, Shackleton and his crew must undertake a trial even more extreme than their planned crossing of the frozen continent – making it home against unbeatable odds.
I am thrilled to be bringing Shackleton’s story to a new generation and to be collaborating once again with the massively talented graphic novelist and illustrator Sarah Lippett.
