Shackleton's Incredible Voyage Mar 11, 2007
Excellent book, technical, and lots of good visuals. The book would be good to use with upper middle school and high school social studies classes accompanying with the film.
Antarctic true adventure Mar 9, 2007
True story of a premiere adventurer to the White Continent. Good preview to Antarctic travel.
Absolutely Amazing!! Feb 4, 2007
Normally, a true account of an antarctic expedition in 1915 would not be at the top of my reading list, but I was intrigued after hearing a friend discussing Ernest Shackleton one night.
I found this to be an extremely interesting and well written account of a group of British explorers lead by Shackleton. The hardships that they face and the way they keep going is unbelievable. You will keep asking yourself if this story could possibly by true! All I could think while reading this book was that I will never complain about anything again!
If you want an exciting, well written book that reads almost like a novel, and will most likely stay with you for life, then check this one out. Even if you are not a huge fan of adventure, I think you will find a lot to like about this book.
This is it- The King of adventure books Jan 29, 2007
the adventure stories to end all adventure stories. If you like adventure, travel stories then this is the # 1 book of all.
Can you imagine the feeling that Shackleton and the men had when they sighted him and he counted all 22 men alive.
