This is an extraordinary account of explorer Tim Jarvis' attempt to retrace Sir Douglas Mawson's infamous polar journey of 1912-13. Battling extreme isolation, and close to starvation, Jarvis aims to complete the journey across the south pole in the forty-seven days that it took Mawson. He does it using exactly the same equipment, clothing and food rations available one hundred years ago.Racing against terrifying blizzards and headwinds, Jarvis struggles to overcome equipment failure, physical deprivation and his own self-doubt. This book is the story of an incredible journey and the limits of human endurance to undertake it.
