The longest-running, single-topic documentary series on television, Biography(R) is not only one of television's most critically successful shows; it is one of the most popular. Celebrating it's fifteenth anniversary in 2002, Biography(R) has profiled over 1,000 people. This groundbreaking new series of illustrated biographies combines the intriguing, insightful approach of the tremendously popular A&E Biography television series, texts from some of today's best authors, and DK's illuminating visual style to explore the lives of history's most colorful figures. Writer and media personality George Plimpton not only tells the story of Shackleton's life and expeditions, but also recounts his own recent adventure following the explorer's footsteps at the bottom of the world.
