Summary Douglas Mawson is famous as an Antarctic explorer who narrowly escaped death on the ice. In this book, Emma McEwin, Mawson's great-granddaughter, reflects on her forebear's public and private persona. Inspired by letters and portraits and other material traces of his legacy, she writes intimately about his effect on generations of his family and the making and unmaking of myths about him
