I also highly recommend this one if you like that sort of stuff. Interesting to see how three teams had different outcomes after the accident plus it's the inspiration for Moby Dick.

Yeah,

Shackleton was an amazing dude. Great documentary on him. Cant remember the name.. Watched it at the Imax a few years back.

Currently reading:

Chronicles of Colorado. Interesting take on our history, seen though the people who witnessed it. ISB: 1-58979-045-6.

On the to read list is: Kearny's March, The epic Creation of the American West, 1846-1847. By Winston groom. ISBN: 978-0-307-27096-2.

Read a little about Kearny and his march, looking forward to the full tale.
