Alone On The Ice

"Alone on Ice" is known as the greatest survival story in the history of exploration, the gripping account is told by award-winning writer and adventurer David Roberts. In 1913, Douglas Mawson, leader of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition, alone and near starvation, does a ninety-five-mile trek across Antarctic ice after the death of his companions and the loss of most of his provisions. Mawson defied the odds and cheated death, he battled hunger, insanity, and deadly crevasses, returning to basecamp almost a month later as a barely living skeleton. via
