Mawson and the Ice Men of the Heroic Age: Scott, Shackleton and Amundsen


Peter Fitzsimon’s new book brings to life these amazing men and their astonishing exploits.

Peter is an entertaining writer but his books are always based on a bedrock of extensive research and references to letters and diaries abound. This adds to the immediacy of the story as does the section of photographs.

I was fortunate enough to visit Antactica seven years ago and whilst I only got to the areas referred to as ‘the banana coast’ because of their slightly milder weather conditions it was an awesome experience. To have travelled into the heart of Antarctica as Mawson did with the clothing and equipment of the day places him as a hero among heroes.

Mawson……is available in hardback of 737 pages. Recommended price is $49.95  but we have it at 20% off – only $39.95!
