“The Endurance: Shackleton's Legendary Antarctic Expedition” by Caroline Alexander contains many amazing photos taken by Frank Hurley during Ernest Shackleton’s epic Antarctic expedition in 1914. The text is good, too, although I preferred “Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage” by Alfred Lansing . Ideally get both books, the former for the photos and the latter for the text. It’s an amazing true story and should be on the reading list for anyone heading to Antarctica or anyone who enjoys reading about historic adventures.
+10 to that, Dean.
If anybody had written Shackleton's story as fiction, nobody would believe it. And the photos are incredible.
