I just read "Alone on the Ice" over the holidays, story of Mawson, Mertz, Ninnis, and company exploring Antarctica. Lots of similarities with Burke, Wills, and King, except there were no aboriginals to save Mawson. The accidental food poisoning, caused by not preparing the seedcakes correctly, reminds me of "Into the Wild". Good reminder that a little bit of knowledge can be dangerous.
