Description
 
In the heroic age of polar exploration, Sir Douglas Mawson stands in the first rank. His Antarctic expeditions of 1911-14 and 1929-31 resulted in Australia's claiming 40% of the sixth continent. The sole survivor of an epic 300 mile trek, Mawson was also a scientist of national stature. Yet until now there has been no comprehensive objective biography of this tall, quiet figure. Aside from his two great expeditions, we have known remarkably little about him.
