Levison Wood was recently set the challenge of selecting 100 stories, essays and excerpts from his favourite literary works on the subjects of survival, adventure and exploration. 'Endurance' is the resulting anthology, encompassing classics of the genre and new, diverse voices, from tales of the heroic age of exploration and incredible acts of dering-do, to pioneering women, record-breaking athletes and survivors of war. Includes extracts about and by Ernest Shackleton, Robert Falcon Scott, Sir Edmund Hillary, Marie Colvin, Gertrude Bell and Nellie Bly, amongst others. 'Endurance' will be published by Head of Zeus in August 2022.
