New book, 296 pages. This book tells the breathtaking story of Douglas Mawson's Antarctic expeditions, in which he more than once narrowly escaped with his life. Mawson had been a key member of Shackleton's 1907-09 Nimrod expedition. In 1911 hos own Australasian Antarctic Expedition set off for the great white south, pitching camp on the slopes of the Beardmore glacier. When both members of his party died, however, he was left to struggle the hundreds of miles back to base, only to find that the rescue ship had sailed away, leaving him to face another year in the Antarctic. Mawson's expedition were scientifically and geographically groundbreaking, and established Australia as a key player in the Antarctic.
