The Home of the Blizzard is a tale of discovery and adventure, of pioneering deeds, great courage, heart-stopping rescues and heroic endurance. This is Mawson's own account of his years spent in Antarctica, travelling in sub-zero temperatures and gale-force winds. At its heart is the epic journey of 1912-13, during which both his companions perished. Told in a laconic but gripping style, this is the classic account of the struggle for survival of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition - a journey which mapped more of Antarctica than any expedition before or since.

    " One of my favorite polar stories. Most terrifying description of crossing crevasses I have yet read. "

    " The official book of the Austrailian exposition to Antarctica under Sir Douglas Mawson. It isn't well known today and there were some great stories. The book is good, but it does get a bit slow at times going through the day to day drudgery of the expedition "
