I have always been an avid fiction reader, but one day I stumbled across the story of Earnest Shackleton and his 1914-1917 trans-Antarctic Endurance Expedition.  Wow! This has to be one of the most incredible adventure stores of all time.  I was hooked.  I was a young, bored girl living in Victoria with a huge desire for adventure.  I started stalking the aisles of our local Carnegie library, always on the search for stories of life on the edge, of struggles and survival, and...
