A gripping tale of adventure for guys..

Postby Tomsk » 23 Apr 2011, 12:03

but girls are welcome...
The book in question is 'The worst journey in the world' by Cherry Gerrard an arctic explorer who sailed with Captain Scott and Ernest Shackleton...well worth a read as it is not bogged down with labourious facts but tells it from the Human side.

Yes! Herbert's NOT Herbie Flowers then ... although HE was born in Middlesex, not a million miles from you. He must be Ernest instead!
