Jim is a retired shop teacher living in Nikiski, Alaska

Endurance by Alfred Lansing, 1959: Ernest Shackleton’s trip to Antartica from England in 1914

True story. Unbelievable stamina, and suffering. Shackleton’s great leadership in extreme conditions in the most inhospitable place in the world. Not a single man died despite overwhelming odds. Optimism, ongoing teamwork under Shackleton. Near starvation, sickness, lack of sleep, prolonged physical exertion. Overcame  startling life endangering events. My favorite book.

    OK, now I have a reading list. It’s only one book long but I have never had a reading list before. Usually just grabbed books at random mostly Dan Brown’s series with Dr. Robert Langdon as the lead character.
