    Story
    (103)

    On January 17, 1913, alone and near starvation, Douglas Mawson, leader of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition, was hauling a sledge to get back to base camp - the dogs were gone. Mawson plunged through a snow bridge, dangling over an abyss by the sledge harness. A line of poetry gave him the will to haul himself back to the surface. On February 8, when he staggered back to base, his features unrecognizable, the first teammate to reach him blurted out, "Which one are you?"

    Jacqueline says: "Historic Death-defying Antarctic Expedition"
    "Inspiring story, man against mother nature"

    If you could sum up Alone on the Ice in three words, what would they be?

    Incredible human spirit


    What did you like best about this story?

    Detailed descriptions of life a century past, men performing feats that we would struggle to accomplish with current technology, and excelling at it.


    What about Matthew Brenher’s performance did you like?

    Very appropriate accent for the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, very interesting listen.


    Any additional comments?

    Makes me want to learn more of Shackleton, Scott and Amundson
