Angus & Robertson Publishers

Two stories of the 'heroic era', of sustained survival and the triumph of the human spirit set against seemingly impossible odds. One is Sir Douglas Mawson's 1909-14 Australian Antarctic Expedition. The other is Sir Ernest Shackleton's unsuccessful attempt to cross the Antarctic continent from 1914-16, and the extraordinary survival of his entire party after the expedition's ship Endurance was crushed and sunk in pack ice. A timely, superbly chronicled and immensely readable double volume.South With Mawson was published in 1947. Shackleton's Argonauts was published in 1948. Both expeditions were chronicled by Frank Hurley, indomitable Australian photographer
