The Lost Men: The Harrowing Story of Shackleton's Ross Sea Party
The Lost Men: The Harrowing Story of Shackleton's Ross Sea Party
by Kelly Tyler-Lewis
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.68

5.0 out of 5 stars Good and detailed, 9 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very well written book, appears well researched too. Plenty of information about the lead up and aftermath of the whole thing, none of which speaks well for the organisation. But as Wild is quoted as saying, 'Talk is cheap, and everybody is wise after the event'. So who am I to criticise. Have recently read Shackleton's Forgotten Argonauts by Lennard Bickel on the same expedition. Less detail in that, especially about the surrounding events, but I felt it conveyed better the unremitting misery and toil across the Barrier.

Nice idea, and works over a short distance, but we need to go about 20 feet and through 2 walls. In these conditions the picture breaks up and the sound is hissy. If you only want to go short distances then buy one, otherwise I wouldn't recommend.
