Description



THE HOME OF THE BLIZZARD is a tale of discovery and
adventure, of pioneering deeds, great courage, heart-stopping rescues
and heroic endurance. This is Mawson's own account of his years
spent in sub-zero temperatures and gale-force winds. At its heart
is the epic journey of 1912-13, during which both his companions
perished. Told in a laconic but gripping style, this is the classic
account of the struggle for survival of the Australasian Antarctic
Expedition - a journey which mapped more of Antarctica than any
expedition before or since.
The photographs included in this book were taken on the journey
by Frank Hurley, later to achieve fame on Sir Ernest Shackleton's
Endurance expedition.
