Darrel Bristow-Bovey talks to Marita van der Vyver about his book Finding Endurance, which begins with the euphoria over the discovery of the wooden wreck of Ernest Shackleton’s Endurance in March last year – by the icebreaker SA Agulhas in Antarctica’s Weddell Sea. The author’s connection to this news is that his father had always said that he had been on the Endurance. In the book, he recreates this epic journey of survival, drawing from moving diary entries and information from previous expeditions as he tracks both his own and his father’s footsteps to make sense of men and their dreams.
