This 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.
