The Loneliest Continent: The Story of Antarctic Discovery by Walker Chapman (Sept. 27-Oct. 3)
The Home of the Blizzard: A True Story of Antarctic Survival by Douglas Mawson (Oct. 3-13)
Alone: The Classic Polar Adventure by Richard E. Byrd (Oct. 16-19)
Karluk: The Great Untold Story of Arctic Exploration by William Laird McKinlay (Oct. 20-24)
Fatal North: Adventure and Survival Aboard USS Polaris, the First U.S. Expedition to the North Pole (Oct 24-29)

Some guy in the introduction to The Home of the Blizzard said that book outshone The Worst Journey in the World..umm no lol. They're both amazing survival stories in their own right (not that I'm biased or anything :P). Mawson's Will was one of the first Antarctic survival stories I read, after I moved up here..I was excited when I saw he had written a book too! I think Cherry was a better writer though lol
