The Home of the Blizzard: A True Story of Antarctic Survival
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 his epic sledge 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 expedition by Frank Hurley, later to achieve fame on Sir Ernest Shackleton's Endurance expedition.
