    "Not For Sensitive Audiences"

    May contain slight spoilers

    I probably should have researched this book a bit better before diving in. While I really enjoyed the story itself, and found it quite interesting I was not prepared for the amount of death and killing of ponies involved.

    This is a novel based on a real event, a particularly disastrous one; it is the story of an adventure to the south pole, two teams racing to have the glory of being the first man there. One man took dogs the other dogs and ponies. This was written from the point of view of a pony named James Pigg, first from his birth and all the way to his death and the many things that happened to him, primarily in the Arctic wasteland of the most southerly contenent .

    If you are sensitive about real accounts of animals and people dying or being shot to death, you may wish to consider researching the non-fiction story and then deciding whether this would be a good book for you. While I learened a lot from this book and found the story to be fun, it does not have a happy ending.
