Tough as Nails In an Era When You Had to Be

Famous Irish explorer Tom Crean and sled dog pups Roger, Nell, Toby, and Nelson during the Endurance expedition of 1991 to Antarctica.

 Crean was about as tough as they come, and was a member of three major expeditions to Antarctica, including the ill-fated Shackleton expedition in which the Endurance was trapped in sea-ice and sank leaving the crew to rescue themselves with an epic open-boat journey to Elephant and then South Georgia island.
