Format: Paperback
This book was exactly what I expected, a detailed and comprehensive account of Mawsons time in Antarctica. Every aspect of the expeditions time was covered, how they arrived there, how they sought out the best bases and went about seting up 'home' in this strange and unknown land. It was a really good read and everything I hoped it would be. I would recommend it to anyone who likes this type of book.
