This book conveys the true story of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition AAE led by Australian explorer Douglas Mawson Mawson was a key contributor to the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration however many people do not carry his name on the tip of the tongue as they do the names of Shackleton Scott and Amundsen While the title suggests this is the story of Mawson s miraculous survival in the wake of the death of his two companions while on an exploratory excursion it is in fact a great deal comprehensive It provides the background and context for the AAE including past experiences preparations for the trip and details about the lives of several of the participants The author is adept at selecting passages from the diaries of the crew without getting carried away with extraneous details We get a sense of Mawson as a scientist at heart not concerned with the competitive race to the pole but interested in mapping uncharted territory and conducting experiments to understand this frozen continent Overall I enjoyed the book very much To me the most engrossing chapters were related to the survival story The other parts were interesting but understandably not uite as riveting Recommended to readers interested in survival stories and the history of polar exploration
