Description

For many explorers, it was a race to see which expedition would be the first to chart and reach the Earth’s Magnetic South Pole. A conquest finally accomplished by the Nimrod Expedition in 1909. A member of that team, 26-year-old Sir Douglas Mawson also held that honor and place in history. A few short years later Mawson would lead his own expedition team back to that icy coastline, hoping to conduct scientific research and chart new areas.

I am addicted to polar, arctic stories. Shackleton and the like. So I was skeptical that this one would meet my high standards. It EXCEEDED them! A riveting story! A ripping yarn! I loved it!!!! Well done. I can't wait for more!
