This Accursed Land by Lennard Bickel (paperback)

forewords by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tim Jarvis (Woodslane Press, 2010)


This Accursed Land charts the epic 1912 journey of Antarctic survival endured by explorer and geologist Sir Douglas Mawson after the tragic death of one of his colleagues and the loss of most of the party’s supplies. Tim was honoured to be asked to write a new foreword to accompany that of Sir Edmund Hillary in this edition of Lennard Bickel’s classic.
