Read full description of the books:



This is without a doubt a five star read. I learned so much about Antarctia as well as some new vocabulary. These were the most vivid for me: arite (sharp ascending edge of a mountain), lead (in this case, a narrow open water path in an ice floe or solid ice), neve (compact snow in the process of becoming glacial ice, sastrugi (irrigularaties in the snow due to wind as waves or ripples formed by hard winds), and nash (refers to cormorants).

The expedition appears to have been blessed with good fortune to date. I thought that the best narratives were written by Mawson. So many wonderful observations are given about local wildlife which, of course, leave before winter; wind, wind and more wind; and wonderful humorous tales about how the crew coped with all those shut-in days. Mawson is the leader of the expedition and such an accomplished writer that I feel as if I am swishing across the glacier crevices with them. The first documented loss of a member of the 18-member party who falls into a "bottomless" crevice along with half of the dogs (the strongest), half of the food (all of the dog food), the tent and some important clothing occurs in Mawson's group. Mawson's description of the incident is so vivid. There is so much - tales about the ship, Aurora, that took and brought them home and experiences from all the small exploring groups. What a read!
