A hundred years ago, Ernest Shackleton and his crew set out for the South Pole. They never made it. Within sight of land, the ship ran into dangerous waters filled with chunks of ice. Then the sea froze around them! There was no hope of rescue. Could Shackleton find a way to save himself and his men? “Well-written and packed with illustrations and photographs, this amazing tale of the will to survive under unthinkable circumstances will amaze kids and keep them glued to every page.”—Dallas Morning News “Shackleton’s heart-pounding expedition and rescue comes vividly to life in this beginning chapter book.”—Booklist Lucille Recht Penner is the author of many nonfiction books for kids, including Dinosaur Babies, and Monster Bugs, in Random House’s Step into Reading program. Two of her titles were named Boston Globe–Horn Book Honor Books. The author lives in Tucson, AZ.
