I am finishing a great book about Sir Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic voyage to the South Pole in 1914-16. The writer of the book is F.A. Worsley, the skipper of the HMS Endurance which was encased in ice, drifted with the sea ice for 6 months, crushed and sank. Shackleton was in command and took all 28 crew members across the Antarctic sea in 3 small boats.... You will love this book. "For scientific discovery, give me Scott; for speed and efficiency of travel, give me Amundsen; but when disaster strikes and all hope is gone, get down on your knees and pray for Shackleton." A born leader of men. Reading this is like watching a documentary. What they went through. My God. I was taught about him in grade school, but never knew the full story. Of course, these great stories of exploration are not taught now.

No. I am sorry, but I have a bad cold, and tired. The name of the book, is "Shackleton's Boat Journey." Regardless, it is a worthwhile read.
