From 1914 to 1917, explorer Ernest Shackleton traveled to Antarctica, trying to set a record by voyaging across the entire continent. But nature intervened. His ship, Endurance, was crushed in sea ice and his miraculous rescue mission through the Southern Ocean on a 20-foot boat is the stuff of legend (Shackleton managed to save all 27 of his men). On the other side of the continent, trouble also beset the crew of a second ship in the expedition--known as the Ross Sea Party, aboard the Aurora--when they were marooned at a base in Cape Evans, on Antarctica's Ross Island, after their ship blew away. The purpose of this party was to supply Shackleton's group on the trek across the continent.
