Trapped in Antarctica!: Nickolas Flux and the Shackleton Expedition

by Nel Yomtov
Illustrated by Mark Simmons

When a spontaneous time leap sends Nickolas Flux back to Ernest Shackleton's ill-fated Endurance Expedition to Antarctica, what's a teenage history buff to do? Try to avoid becoming stranded at the bottom of the world, of course! From the crushing of the Endurance by ice to the heroic lifeboat journey to South Georgia Island, Nick must survive one of the most amazing expeditions of the early 1900s.
