Ernest Shackleton: whiskey, ghosts, adventure

My latest review for Women’s Adventure Magazine takes a look at John Geiger’s The Third Man Factor: Surviving the Impossible.  

In light of media attention on the upcoming New Zealand expedition to retrieve Ernest Shackleton’s century-old Scotch whiskey trapped under the Antarctic ice, it seemed only fitting to also honor the legendary adventurer for his starring role in this new nonfiction book.

Check out the review here.

And, who can resist a reference to T.S. Eliot…?

Excerpt from “The Waste Land” (1922)
T.S. Eliot (1888–1965)

Who is the third who walks always beside you?
When I count, there are only you and I together
But when I look ahead up the white road
There is always another one walking beside you.
