This review is from: The Lost Men: The Harrowing Saga of Shackleton's Ross Sea Party (Hardcover)
Just finished the book and am a bit disappointed. I had hoped to get insight into the lives of the people involved in this amazing tale. What the author gives us is a detailed account of the events built from the diaries of the men. Overall the book reads like a newspaper article - the stories are sometimes intriguing but often tedious. If you are looking for a thorough account of the events that occurred around the Ross Sea Party, this is the book for you.
