Description
Not long after Ernest Shackleton saw his ship Endurance trapped in the ice floes of the Weddell Sea in 1915, on the other side of Antarctica, the expedition's second ship, Aurora, suffered an equally terrifying fate in the Ross Sea: she was torn from her moorings, driven out to sea, and finally trapped in pack ice. For 10 months the ice sawed at her hull, until—with her rudder smashed and water cascading from her seams—she broke free, and J.R. Stenhouse piloted the stricken ship 1,000 miles to New Zealand. The author of Born Adventurer: The Life of Frank Bickerton follows Stenhouse from Antarctica to a later search for pirate treasure, and his heroic service in both world wars.
