... s Incredible Voyage. Sadly I did not have time to read this book - a pleasure still to come! - but I did watch a fascinating 11-part documentary of his experience on YouTube. Film photography was still relatively new in 1914, yet Shackleton took a photographer with him. Over 100 of the photographer's haunting photos remain.
