The Endurance Expedition to Antarctica

This astonishing memoir of Shackleton's final voyage explores courage, tenacity and unflagging hope in the face of adversity. Including Frank Hurley's incomparable photographs of the expedition, South remains one of the greatest adventures of the twentieth century.

'For scientific discovery give me Scott; for speed and efficiency of travel give me Amundsen; but when disaster strikes and all hope is gone, get down on your knees and pray for Shackleton.'
- Sir Edmund Hillary

First published in two-volumes in 1814, this is the enthralling account of the circumnavigation of Australia, by the man who gave our country its name.

Edited and introduced by Tim Flannery, Terra Australis is a vital step toward a new understanding of our own history. Flinders tells of meeting and communicating with Aborigines, of the scrub and wilderness. His descriptions of the difficulties that he and his sailors faced still bristle with energy and immediacy two hundred years later. This is Flinders' story in his own words, neglected until now, but destined to be eagerly read by all ages.

'Tim Flannery takes a part of Australian history that has meant numbing boredom to generations of schoolchildren and pummels it into robust and tragicomic shape.'
- Bulletin
