Amazon.com review:

"Classic tales from the icy South. Of all the 19-century era of Antarctic exploration, two stand out. One is Douglas Mawson's 1909-1914 Australasian Antarctic Expedition, and the other is Sir Ernest Shackleton's attempt to cross the Antarctic continent from 1914 to1916, and the extraordinary survival of his party after the expedition's ship Endurance sank in pack ice. Superbly chronicled by the Australian photographer Frank Hurley, these two narratives are combined in this timely and immensely readable double volume."

From Wikipedia:

"Shackleton's Argonauts: A Saga of the Antarctic Ice-Pack (1948) is a book by Australian photographer and explorer Frank Hurley. Hurley was the official photographer attached to Ernest Shackleton's 1914 expedition to the Antarctic. Known as the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, Shackleton's aim was to ship his party to the head of the Weddell Sea and then cross the continent to the Ross Sea with a small party by dog sledge. But things went wrong from the start when their ship, the Endurance, was caught and crushed in ice-packs. After months surviving on the ice, the expedition finally made it to Elephant Island. From there Shackleton undertook an open-boat journey to South Georgia to organise a rescue, which, after some months and several attempts, was finally successful. Hurley was able to save some negatives from the expedition and used a number to illustrate the book..."
