The Home of the Blizzard is a tale of discovery and adventure, of pioneering deeds, great courage, heart-stopping rescues and heroic endurance. This is Mawson’s own account of his years spent in Antarctica, travelling in sub-zero temperatures and gale-force winds. At its heart is the epic journey of 1912-13, during which both his companions perished. Told in a laconic but gripping style, this is the classic account of the struggle for survival of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition - a journey which mapped more of Antarctica than any expedition before or since.

Would benefit with abridgement
Where does Home of the Blizzard rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I certainly do not want to minimize the staggering challenges met by these men on a daily basis, but the exhaustive detail could easily bear abridgment for the typical reader.

A True Story of Antarctic Survival.
My husband loves all things Antarctic and the spirit of the explorers. This kept him entertained no end. Not my cuppa tea but I'm pleased he enjoyed it.
