Apparently, I have been caught in an historical inaccuracy

A reader has informed me that Robert Scott, a prominent polar explorer at the beginning of the 20th century, did not die in a snow drift, despite my comparisons to the contrary. I suppose I should have compared myself to Ernest Shackleton, another polar explorer of the time. He survived, after all. Just thought I'd throw that out there. And, yeah, look him up. Worth reading about.

A good fictional book on the subject is "Death on the Ice" by Robert Ryan.

It is available on Amazon - just hit the button on the upper right side on the front page is this blog. (Hint, effin' hint).
