Reviews

'The greatest survival story in the history of exploration' Sir Edmund Hillary 'In Beau Riffenburgh, [Mawson] has found a biographer who truly knows his way around the hut politics and intemperate journals of Antarctic history ... The biographer takes the Edwardian view that it's by the explorer's heroics you shall know him, which is why, like the best polar books, Racing With Death is on peak form when out on the ice' Daily Telegraph 'Beau Riffenburgh has delivered an outstanding adventure' Literary Review
