This account, so profusely illustrated by the magnificent photographs of Frank Hurley is a classic of Polar literature, describing the first major scientific exploring venture by an Australian beyond their shores. Mawson's lone survival after the fatal tragedy of his two companions (Ninnis and Mertz) was to become the most extraordinary epic of survival in Antarctica. He was undoubtedly one of the most outstanding explorers of the 20th century and ranks high among our national icons.

The Home of the Blizzard. Sir Douglas Mawson.
