I came to this book with an interest in learning the history of Anartic exploration, and Turney does so much more than that. Turney goes into the five countries and explorers ( i had only known of Amundsen and Scott) and really brings to light the epic scientific discoveries, particularly of the Australians led by Mawson. The author does a great job giving you a background to the expeditions of 1912-13, and details the scienctific thought of the day. Great read and extremely informative.Was this review helpful?
