My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Fantastic! Since reading this book I compare anything tough (in my mind) to do, I just think how bloody tough these blokes were and suck it up. I haven’t read about Shackleton and Scott yet but this is a really great story, there were many stories in here that made me stop in my tracks and say “No way! How did they/he go on?”
All of the men in this story are hero’s, I could not imagine any group of people (maybe a rare individual) from this time surviving this ordeal, we really have become a bunch of soft powder puffs and we have to find ways to harden the heck up.
