A colorized photo triggering interest in Ernest Shacklton

"Men wanted for hazardous journey. Small wages. Bitter cold. Long months of complete darkness. Constant danger. Safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in case of success."Ernest Shackleton Antartica

Seeing a colorized version of a photo on Twitter the other day from the British National Antarctic Expedition at the turn of the century triggered memories of reading about the ships and men that explored Antarctica. Perhaps it is time to re-read a book a few of the many articles from the day or a couple newer books? Many the movie Shackleton?
