So…..I know and have read about Shackeltons Antarctic “exploration” but decided to listen to a new reading of Lansings 1959 book on audible. It’s read by Simon Prebble. Spectacular. Even though we all know the story and likely even if you’ve read Lansings book……..the reading brings a level of drama and realism I cannot explain. When the story recounted the shooting of the puppies as non-essential following abandoning the Endurance and heading out overland……I had tears in my eyes. Beginning to end it’s a wonderful story told remarkably well. Worth it.
