Mawson's Hut

Mawson's Hut

$39.95 GST

A beautifully written and illustrated history of Mawson’s Huts, the unique buildings used as the base for one of the most significant expeditions in Antarctic history. After the death of his two sledging companions, Dr Xavier Mertz and Lieutenant Belgrave Ninnis, Mawson walked for a month, starving and alone, back to Cape Denison, only to see his ship departing in the distance. The fragile wooden hut where he had to spend a further year with six companions is now a historic site, and is being conserved by the Mawson’s Huts Foundation in partnership with the Australian Antarctic Division.
