About the Author

David Burke OAM, a former journalist with the Melbourne Herald Sun and the Sydney Morning Herald, has made six visits to Antarctica and written four books on the subject: Monday At McMurdo; Moments of Terror: The Story of Antarctic Aviation; Voyage To The End Of The World: With Tales From The Great Ice Barrier; and, Body at the Melbourne Club. He and the late Dr P. G. Law were the first (and so far, only) Australians to make a direct flight from Australia to the South Pole when they were members of a long-range US Navy crossing of the bottom of the world. He believes he was the first Australian to have served at Mass in Antarctica, when based at McMurdo Sound; from there he was also the first person to make a phone call to Australia from Antarctica. David lives at Kiama on the South Coast of New South Wales. This is his 26th book.
