On Nov 30 2018, said:
  " This story is truly an epic tale of survival. Living on an ice floe, stranded on an island, an open boat voyage of 800 miles in freezing cold waters and a cross mountain walk of 36 hours to rescue. Sir Ernest Shackleton saved 22 men from death by skill as a great leader and his strength. His crew of hand picked men were also of great skills and brotherhood. They all survived to continue their lives and remember the greatest adventure of all. A story not to be missed."
