From Library Journal:

Shackleton here tells the quite remarkable story of the British Antarctic expedition of 1907 to 1909. Shackleton and his men made it to within 97 miles of the South Pole, experiencing along the way every hardship possible, then returning to their wooden ship before the ice crushed it. The text is buttressed with many original monochrome photos. Just reading this will make your toes fall off.
