Paul-Emile Victor, préfacier du présent ouvrage, aimait à rappeler que s'il avait consacré sa vie à l'exploration des régions polaires, c'était pour avoir lu un jour la relation de voyage de Shackleton à bord de l' " Endurance " : à ses yeux le plus grand récit d'aventures vécues qui ait été publié en ce siècle - rien de moins. Certes Shackleton, confronté à des difficultés inouïes, aura échoué à réaliser son rêve. Mais la chronique de cet échec (deux ans de dérive à travers les glaces et une tentative de sauvetage par mer d'une audace parfaitement folle) vaut toutes les victoires

In 1914, as Europe braces for an unfathomably deadly war, explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton sets sail for Antarctica to do the impossible: traverse the continent. He has a ship (the aptly named Endurance), a head brimming with optimism, and 28 men willing to follow him on an expedition across some of the most treacherous terrain on the planet. But Shackleton's optimism doesn't last long. Despite his experience in the Antarctic, disaster strikes early on when the Endurance is trapped in packed ice and slowly crushed, forcing Shackleton and his men off the ship and stranding them in a sea of i
Aurora Australis by Ernest Henry Shackleton( Book )

4 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and Multiple languages and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an age when it is fashionable to forget the achievements of the great explorers of the heroic age, comes the timely rebirth of this legendary book, penned by a band of brave British men whose wit and wisdom blazes like a sun beside today's lesser stars. In 1907 Ernest Shackleton led the Nimrod Expedition to Antarctica. He established a base camp at Cape Royds on Ross Island and built a wooden hut to serve as headquarters. Because of his prior experience with Robert Scott¿s first expedition, Shackleton knew the sunless winter months spent in these cramped quarters would test the morale of his men, so he set several of them to work writing and printing the first book ever produced on the Antarctic continent. Containing fact, fiction, humour, prose and poetry, "Aurora Australis," is one of the most extraordinary travel books ever written. It contains stories about the Antarctic wildlife, describes the harsh conditions suffered by the explorers and recounts their journey to the top of Mount Erebus, a nearby active volcano surrounded by ice. An estimated one hundred copies were originally "Printed at the Sign of the Penguin" by these gifted authors, the result of which is a unique symbol of the heroic age of exploration. Because of its rarity a first edition of "Aurora Australis" recently sold for more than $100,000. This special edition is being produced in an effort to raise awareness of the need to conserve the four huts used by the British explorers, along with the remarkable memorabilia and icebound supplies preserved within their frozen walls. Having endured nearly a century of harsh weather, these huts still symbolise the nobler aspects of human nature which took these talented and brave men to Antarctica. The buildings are now considered to be some of the most endangered historic structures in the world.--back cover
