Reviews

"Traveling in the footsteps of the great explorers Ernest Shackleton and Douglas Mawson, Turney draws on records from their journeys, making comparisons versus his own struggle. Getting stuck in the ice makes Turney famous, a pleasant surprise he also chronicles in this enjoyable armchair adventure." --Booklist "A scientist's gripping account of Antarctic adventure that weaves the gritty accounts of Shackleton, Mawson, and other early explorers with discoveries of the very real climactic perils facing us all today." --Robert Birkby, author of Mountain Madness "A classic adventure tale of a fight for survival. Turney's account brings a chill to the spine." --Herald Sun, Melbourne "The author's reflections on his Antarctic journey makes for exciting and compelling reading. We are shown the inspiring nature of the frozen continent and the indomitable spirit displayed by the Shokalskiy's crew and travelers during their distressing ordeal." --Good Reading
