Survival or Travel Stories Wanted

I recently read the book Endurance
about Shackleton's trip to the Antarctic and enjoyed it immensely. What other historical books in the same vein would I enjoy?

I came away from that book amazed at the way they survived and crossed unmapped icebound islands with no more than 50 ft. of rope and a pick axe. Now I want more tales of survival or even just tales of historic travels.
What other books are known for their well written tales of true adventure?
