Open All Close All

http://schema.org/description

  • "Douglas Mawson is the best known of Australia's Antarctic explorers. After an apprenticeship on an expedition with Ernest Shackleton, which saw Mawson lead a small team to the South Magnetic Pole for the first time, his own expedition of 1911 captured the imagination of Australians, at a time when knowledge of Antarctica was scant and the frozen continent still largely unexplored. Douglas Mawson: The Life of an Explorer puts Antarctic exploration into the context of the times, and makes fantastic reading and viewing for anyone interested in Antarctica and in the life of the great scientist and explorer. Lincoln Hall offers a fresh interpretation not only of Mawsons exploits but also of his motivations, his character and his knack for survival."
  • "A fascinating biography of Australia's greatest Antarctic explorer. Includes old diaries and correspondence which paint a portrait of Mawson againsta backdrop of some of the most important events of the 20th Century."
  • "The life story of one of Australia's best-known Antarctic explorers."
