Five top books on winter

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five books on winter:
The Worst Journey in the World
by Apsley Cherry-Garrard

The author served as assistant zoologist on Scott's last, ill-starred expedition to the frozen wasteland that rings the South Pole. Written a decade after he narrowly escaped his leader's fate, Cherry-Garrard's account of Antarctic exploration is gripping, poignant, and not without a bracing humor.
Read about another book on the list.
