    DescriptionThis volume offers accounts of two of the 19th-century expeditions that took place in the so-called "heroic era" of Antarctic exploration. The first is Sir Douglas Mawson's 1911-14 Australasian Antarctic Expedition. The other is Ernest Shackleton's unsuccessful attempt to cross the Antarctic continent from 1914-16 and the extraordinary survival of his entire party after the expedition's ship, Endurance, was crushed and sunk in the pack ice. Chronicled in black-and-white images by the Australian photographer Frank Hurley, these two narratives are combined within this double volume. There is also an introduction by journalist and historian Tim Bowden.
