The story of Sir Earnest Shackleton's harrowing 1914 Antarctic expedition has been told many times in Shackleton's own account, in a PBS series and in a recent book focusing on the leadership lessons his journey taught, just to name a few. But in South with Endurance: Shackleton's Antarctic Expedition 1914-1917, The Photographs of Frank Hurley, an oversized collection featuring all of the official photographer's pictures (including several previously unpublished color plates), the voyage continues to enthrall. The stark black and white images of the ship and its men caught in an ocean of ice are both beautiful and chilling; photography buffs and adventure lovers alike will relish the images from one who was surely one of history's greatest documentary photographers. 500 photos in duotone and color.
