    My obsession with Antarctic explorers began when I was eleven and read The Great White South by Herbert Ponting, the photographer on the 1911 Scott expedition. As a girl, I held a heroic idealization of Scott and his men freezing in their hut. It seemed all so heroic, then. Later readi...

    A riveting true story of Henry Worsley, a born leader and man obsessed with exploring the challenging, breathtakingly beautiful terrain of Antarctica, following in the footsteps of his idol Ernest Shackleton. I immediately became immersed in this remarkable story. Worsley?s note...

    I reckon I lost about three miles' distance today from snaking around, head permanently bowed to read the compass, just my shuffling skis to look at for nine hours. Anyway, I'm back on track and now happy I can part a straight line, even through another day of the white darkness. ~ ...

    Nothing about Ernest Shackleton's story would make me want to replicate his expedition crossing Antarctica, but Henry Worsley wanted to do just that, but alone. He wasn't deterred by the fact that Shackleton's journey was an epic failure. I guess "adventurer" is just another word for "...

    This gem of a book details the Antarctic expeditions of Harry Worsley, who modeled himself on the leadership of explorer Ernest Shackleton. While the book is small at 146 pages, it is perfect as a gift for inspiration and/or admiration. ...

    Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley You might not recognize Henry Worsley?s name, but you mostly likely have heard the story. At the end of 2015-the beginning of 2016, he attempted to cross Antarctica alone, but sicken, was airlifted, and, sadly, died while doctors while trying to save...

    The day before I read the book dry, this book was the contrast I was seeking. Knowing nothing of the outcome I was awestruck by his endeavors, but the mood shifted and I prayed the tonal difference I felt was wrong... alas, tears were dripping down my cheeks at the close. I am truly aw...

    Within the pages of The White Darkness you will find a true narrative of Henry Worsley, a man in possession of grit, fortitude, and never giving up. All clearly layered out by a writer that does these tellings of lives, complexities, and struggles, so well. He defines Henry Worsley?...

    This is a quick, inspirational Christmas morning read for both young and old! I loved this book. I'm old and need to be reminded these days of true leaders and adventurers. One of the best parts of this book, besides the flat out courage and commitment of these explorers, were the insp...

    The White Darkness follows Henry Worsley on his two (!!!) treks through Antarctica to follow in the footsteps of his hero, Ernest Shakleton. I learned a lot about the continent and about how grueling it is to even spend a day there, let alone months at a time. Worsley is brave, driven,...

    This story about Henry Worsley and his quest to follow Shackleton' s footsteps to the Antarctica covers two expeditions, the second solo. Biographical information is solid and you want Worsley to succeed. Those interested in Shackleton will be intrigued. Copy provided by the Publish...

    David Grann has been one of my favorite New Yorker reporters for years, ever since I read his "Trial by Fire," a fascinating look at a case of arson, written with fantastic verve and twists and turns. I've since enjoyed almost everything he's done, especially the stories on men's obses...

    An exquisite reading experience. A short book with semi-glossy pages (very tactile and just nice to turn the pages), photos in all the right places to complement the story, and the telling of a story about Antarctic explorers - Shackleton (early 1900s) and Worsley (2000s). I read this ...

    You can probably deduce this from the length, but don't expect the immersive depth of "Lost City of Z" or the deeply investigated intensity of "Killers of the Flower Moon." This book is basically a glorified New Yorker story with lots of beautiful pictures, written by one o the best no...

    Excellent one sitting read about a modern day polar explorer and his calling. Accompanied by fantastic photographs, Worsley's story is engrossing. I was a little chilly the entire time I read it, but loved every second of it. Perfect for a winter evening's read by the fire. ...

    My obsession with Antarctic explorers began when I was eleven and read The Great White South by Herbert Ponting, the photographer on the 1911 Scott expedition. As a girl, I held a heroic idealization of Scott and his men freezing in their hut. It seemed all so heroic, then. Later readi...

    A riveting true story of Henry Worsley, a born leader and man obsessed with exploring the challenging, breathtakingly beautiful terrain of Antarctica, following in the footsteps of his idol Ernest Shackleton. I immediately became immersed in this remarkable story. Worsley?s note...

    I reckon I lost about three miles' distance today from snaking around, head permanently bowed to read the compass, just my shuffling skis to look at for nine hours. Anyway, I'm back on track and now happy I can part a straight line, even through another day of the white darkness. ~ ...

    Nothing about Ernest Shackleton's story would make me want to replicate his expedition crossing Antarctica, but Henry Worsley wanted to do just that, but alone. He wasn't deterred by the fact that Shackleton's journey was an epic failure. I guess "adventurer" is just another word for "...

    This gem of a book details the Antarctic expeditions of Harry Worsley, who modeled himself on the leadership of explorer Ernest Shackleton. While the book is small at 146 pages, it is perfect as a gift for inspiration and/or admiration. ...

    Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley You might not recognize Henry Worsley?s name, but you mostly likely have heard the story. At the end of 2015-the beginning of 2016, he attempted to cross Antarctica alone, but sicken, was airlifted, and, sadly, died while doctors while trying to save...

    Within the pages of The White Darkness you will find a true narrative of Henry Worsley, a man in possession of grit, fortitude, and never giving up. All clearly layered out by a writer that does these tellings of lives, complexities, and struggles, so well. He defines Henry Worsley?...

    This is a quick, inspirational Christmas morning read for both young and old! I loved this book. I'm old and need to be reminded these days of true leaders and adventurers. One of the best parts of this book, besides the flat out courage and commitment of these explorers, were the insp...

    The White Darkness follows Henry Worsley on his two (!!!) treks through Antarctica to follow in the footsteps of his hero, Ernest Shakleton. I learned a lot about the continent and about how grueling it is to even spend a day there, let alone months at a time. Worsley is brave, driven,...

    This story about Henry Worsley and his quest to follow Shackleton' s footsteps to the Antarctica covers two expeditions, the second solo. Biographical information is solid and you want Worsley to succeed. Those interested in Shackleton will be intrigued. Copy provided by the Publish...

    David Grann has been one of my favorite New Yorker reporters for years, ever since I read his "Trial by Fire," a fascinating look at a case of arson, written with fantastic verve and twists and turns. I've since enjoyed almost everything he's done, especially the stories on men's obses...

    This review covers the essay found in Feb 12/19 of "The New yorker" I don't usually review essays but David Grann is an author whose books I'll always read. This is a marvellous look at the life story of Henry Worsley, a descendant of one of the members of Ernest Shackleton's crew. ...

    Read this book in a couple of hours. Yes, it is a short book, but also impossible to put down. Great story and very well written. Left me wanting more. ...

    Better suited for a long New Yorker profile than a standalone book. Not entirely satisfying. I didn?t get a feel for the explorer and I the audible narration is mismatched to the topic. (Update: If I were more up to snuff on all the pieces in a pile of New Yorker magazines that are c...

    Spoilers ahead, and full disclosure in light of Antarctic exploration: I?m a quarter Norwegian. After 100 years, the British have evidently haven?t learned as much about polar exploration as they should have. The will to succeed and persevere will not always work against nature,...

    An exquisite reading experience. A short book with semi-glossy pages (very tactile and just nice to turn the pages), photos in all the right places to complement the story, and the telling of a story about Antarctic explorers - Shackleton (early 1900s) and Worsley (2000s). I read this ...

    Excellent one sitting read about a modern day polar explorer and his calling. Accompanied by fantastic photographs, Worsley's story is engrossing. I was a little chilly the entire time I read it, but loved every second of it. Perfect for a winter evening's read by the fire. ...

    People like Henry Wosley (main subject) just amaze me. To put yourself through the rigors required to accomplish overcoming the Antarctic, the planning, the physical challenge to work ceaselessly in sub-zero temperatures, and most of all, to have the mental fortitude to push on when y...

    This is a really fascinating story. I'm surprised that I had not heard about Worsley's adventures before I picked up this book. Grann does his typical excellent job of research and writing, bringing to life the stories of Shackleton and Worsley a century apart. The photos in the book h...

    Inspired to go it alone. An incredible journey in to the land very few have known. Henry Worsley and two others followed Edward Shackleton?s path to trek Antarctica and reach the South Pole. Then he went it alone... ...

    I read this book in one sitting. I knew nothing about Worsley and his polar expedition and found it fascinating. Grann?s writing pulled me right in to the story. And the accompanying pictures where breathtaking. I rarely read non fiction but after reading this book I plan to change t...

    The White Darkness follows Henry Worsley on his two (!!!) treks through Antarctica to follow in the footsteps of his hero, Ernest Shakleton. I learned a lot about the continent and about how grueling it is to even spend a day there, let alone months at a time. Worsley is brave, driven,...

    David Grann has been one of my favorite New Yorker reporters for years, ever since I read his "Trial by Fire," a fascinating look at a case of arson, written with fantastic verve and twists and turns. I've since enjoyed almost everything he's done, especially the stories on men's obses...

    This review covers the essay found in Feb 12/19 of "The New yorker" I don't usually review essays but David Grann is an author whose books I'll always read. This is a marvellous look at the life story of Henry Worsley, a descendant of one of the members of Ernest Shackleton's crew. ...

    Read this book in a couple of hours. Yes, it is a short book, but also impossible to put down. Great story and very well written. Left me wanting more. ...

    Better suited for a long New Yorker profile than a standalone book. Not entirely satisfying. I didn?t get a feel for the explorer and I the audible narration is mismatched to the topic. (Update: If I were more up to snuff on all the pieces in a pile of New Yorker magazines that are c...

    THE WHITE DARKNESS. (2018). David Grann. ****. This short book tells the story of Henry Worsley and his obsession with Ernest Shackelton, the earlier polar explorer who became famous for his achievement in being the first person to reach the South Pole. He also attempted to cross Ant...

    Spoilers ahead, and full disclosure in light of Antarctic exploration: I?m a quarter Norwegian. After 100 years, the British have evidently haven?t learned as much about polar exploration as they should have. The will to succeed and persevere will not always work against nature,...

    An exquisite reading experience. A short book with semi-glossy pages (very tactile and just nice to turn the pages), photos in all the right places to complement the story, and the telling of a story about Antarctic explorers - Shackleton (early 1900s) and Worsley (2000s). I read this ...

    You can probably deduce this from the length, but don't expect the immersive depth of "Lost City of Z" or the deeply investigated intensity of "Killers of the Flower Moon." This book is basically a glorified New Yorker story with lots of beautiful pictures, written by one o the best no...

    My obsession with Antarctic explorers began when I was eleven and read The Great White South by Herbert Ponting, the photographer on the 1911 Scott expedition. As a girl, I held a heroic idealization of Scott and his men freezing in their hut. It seemed all so heroic, then. Later readi...

    I reckon I lost about three miles' distance today from snaking around, head permanently bowed to read the compass, just my shuffling skis to look at for nine hours. Anyway, I'm back on track and now happy I can part a straight line, even through another day of the white darkness. ~ ...

    Nothing about Ernest Shackleton's story would make me want to replicate his expedition crossing Antarctica, but Henry Worsley wanted to do just that, but alone. He wasn't deterred by the fact that Shackleton's journey was an epic failure. I guess "adventurer" is just another word for "...

    This gem of a book details the Antarctic expeditions of Harry Worsley, who modeled himself on the leadership of explorer Ernest Shackleton. While the book is small at 146 pages, it is perfect as a gift for inspiration and/or admiration. ...

    Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley You might not recognize Henry Worsley?s name, but you mostly likely have heard the story. At the end of 2015-the beginning of 2016, he attempted to cross Antarctica alone, but sicken, was airlifted, and, sadly, died while doctors while trying to save...

    Excellent one sitting read about a modern day polar explorer and his calling. Accompanied by fantastic photographs, Worsley's story is engrossing. I was a little chilly the entire time I read it, but loved every second of it. Perfect for a winter evening's read by the fire. ...

    A good, short little read where descendants of polar explorers decide to recreate their ancestors' trips. The premise is great but the book is very short, leaving out much of the detail about hazardous exploration that makes it so much fun to read about. This is more of an article than...

    https://www.themaineedge.com/adventur... We have always sought to explore the unknown. There have always been men who want to be the first to be somewhere, the first to do something. The spirit of adventure runs strong with some ? too strong to ignore and so strong as to lead to t...

    THE WHITE DARKNESS. (2018). David Grann. ****. This short book tells the story of Henry Worsley and his obsession with Ernest Shackelton, the earlier polar explorer who became famous for his achievement in being the first person to reach the South Pole. He also attempted to cross Ant...

    Spoilers ahead, and full disclosure in light of Antarctic exploration: I?m a quarter Norwegian. After 100 years, the British have evidently haven?t learned as much about polar exploration as they should have. The will to succeed and persevere will not always work against nature,...

    An exquisite reading experience. A short book with semi-glossy pages (very tactile and just nice to turn the pages), photos in all the right places to complement the story, and the telling of a story about Antarctic explorers - Shackleton (early 1900s) and Worsley (2000s). I read this ...

    You can probably deduce this from the length, but don't expect the immersive depth of "Lost City of Z" or the deeply investigated intensity of "Killers of the Flower Moon." This book is basically a glorified New Yorker story with lots of beautiful pictures, written by one o the best no...

    Excellent one sitting read about a modern day polar explorer and his calling. Accompanied by fantastic photographs, Worsley's story is engrossing. I was a little chilly the entire time I read it, but loved every second of it. Perfect for a winter evening's read by the fire. ...

    People like Henry Wosley (main subject) just amaze me. To put yourself through the rigors required to accomplish overcoming the Antarctic, the planning, the physical challenge to work ceaselessly in sub-zero temperatures, and most of all, to have the mental fortitude to push on when y...

    ?A salutary reminder just who is in control around here,? he said of the conditions. ?Trespassers will be punished.? My Pastor did a sermon series entitled South about Shackleton?s expedition. When I heard of this book, about descendants of some of the original men on the...

    This is a really fascinating story. I'm surprised that I had not heard about Worsley's adventures before I picked up this book. Grann does his typical excellent job of research and writing, bringing to life the stories of Shackleton and Worsley a century apart. The photos in the book h...

    Excelente! ...

    Inspired to go it alone. An incredible journey in to the land very few have known. Henry Worsley and two others followed Edward Shackleton?s path to trek Antarctica and reach the South Pole. Then he went it alone... ...

    My obsession with Antarctic explorers began when I was eleven and read The Great White South by Herbert Ponting, the photographer on the 1911 Scott expedition. As a girl, I held a heroic idealization of Scott and his men freezing in their hut. It seemed all so heroic, then. Later readi...

    A riveting true story of Henry Worsley, a born leader and man obsessed with exploring the challenging, breathtakingly beautiful terrain of Antarctica, following in the footsteps of his idol Ernest Shackleton. I immediately became immersed in this remarkable story. Worsley?s note...

    I reckon I lost about three miles' distance today from snaking around, head permanently bowed to read the compass, just my shuffling skis to look at for nine hours. Anyway, I'm back on track and now happy I can part a straight line, even through another day of the white darkness. ~ ...

    Nothing about Ernest Shackleton's story would make me want to replicate his expedition crossing Antarctica, but Henry Worsley wanted to do just that, but alone. He wasn't deterred by the fact that Shackleton's journey was an epic failure. I guess "adventurer" is just another word for "...

    This gem of a book details the Antarctic expeditions of Harry Worsley, who modeled himself on the leadership of explorer Ernest Shackleton. While the book is small at 146 pages, it is perfect as a gift for inspiration and/or admiration. ...

    Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley You might not recognize Henry Worsley?s name, but you mostly likely have heard the story. At the end of 2015-the beginning of 2016, he attempted to cross Antarctica alone, but sicken, was airlifted, and, sadly, died while doctors while trying to save...

    The day before I read the book dry, this book was the contrast I was seeking. Knowing nothing of the outcome I was awestruck by his endeavors, but the mood shifted and I prayed the tonal difference I felt was wrong... alas, tears were dripping down my cheeks at the close. I am truly aw...

    Within the pages of The White Darkness you will find a true narrative of Henry Worsley, a man in possession of grit, fortitude, and never giving up. All clearly layered out by a writer that does these tellings of lives, complexities, and struggles, so well. He defines Henry Worsley?...

    This is a quick, inspirational Christmas morning read for both young and old! I loved this book. I'm old and need to be reminded these days of true leaders and adventurers. One of the best parts of this book, besides the flat out courage and commitment of these explorers, were the insp...

    The White Darkness follows Henry Worsley on his two (!!!) treks through Antarctica to follow in the footsteps of his hero, Ernest Shakleton. I learned a lot about the continent and about how grueling it is to even spend a day there, let alone months at a time. Worsley is brave, driven,...

    This story about Henry Worsley and his quest to follow Shackleton' s footsteps to the Antarctica covers two expeditions, the second solo. Biographical information is solid and you want Worsley to succeed. Those interested in Shackleton will be intrigued. Copy provided by the Publish...

    David Grann has been one of my favorite New Yorker reporters for years, ever since I read his "Trial by Fire," a fascinating look at a case of arson, written with fantastic verve and twists and turns. I've since enjoyed almost everything he's done, especially the stories on men's obses...

    This review covers the essay found in Feb 12/19 of "The New yorker" I don't usually review essays but David Grann is an author whose books I'll always read. This is a marvellous look at the life story of Henry Worsley, a descendant of one of the members of Ernest Shackleton's crew. ...
