This is a wonderful audio book. I listened on the way to and from work (and any other time I was in the car alone) and there were several times when I didn't want to get out of the car. I wonder if the printed version includes some of the photographs mentioned in the story. I'd love to see them! Shackleton's expedition has interested me for quite a while ... I'm absolutely amazed by the fact that ALL his men survived their ordeal!

What was REALLY neat for me was listening to this while driving in heavy snow - it set the mood perfectly! Heavy snow in Maryland in early December is quite unusual but it was a great setting for the story.

Awesome book! This was a book I chose for the new-to-me author challenge of 2007. Biographies are not my usual style, but I loved this book. It actually made me want to find more information on this incident. It was exciting, sad, tragic, and stunning. I highly recommend this one!
