Description

Dive into a gripping first-hand account of adventure in the Antarctic - a tale rich in great courage, heart-stopping rescues and heroic perseverance, all in sub-zero temperatures and gale-force winds. Douglas Mawson completed an epic journey across Antarctica from 1912 to 1913 and here he recounts his efforts to map the precarious Antarctic. Ultimately, Mawson and his group explored some 2,000 miles of the coastline, adding a wealth of information to our scientific understanding and even discovering the now-famous colonies of emperor penguins. Illustrated with more than 90 original photographs, Mawson's book, like those of of Shackleton and Scott, is a classic of adventure and survival.
