Shackleton: Antarctic Odyssey – Nick Bertozzi

Shackleton: Antarctic Odyssey – Nick Bertozzi

I posted a scant review of another book Bertozzi did, one on the story of Lewis and Clark.

I gather he is doing a series on explorers, and this time he tackled the story of arguably one of the greatest of them all, and certainly one of the most incredible stories of survival against unfathomable odds. While I was fairly familiar with the story, I think this was a great telling of it, and worth it whether you do or don’t know the story. It’s a tale that has been told in numerous books, and this is a worthy addition to that canon.

If he does other books on that theme, I will definitely check them out.
