Excerpt from Argonauts of the South: Being a Narrative of Voyagings and Polar Seas and Adventures in the Antarctic With Sir Douglas Mawson and Sir Ernest Shackleton

I have tried to tell of the wonders we saw; of the dan gers we faced; of the glamour of being the first to pene trate the unknown; of our successes, and of our failures, - just as glorious - and to picture as far as words can the incredible beauties, as well as the awesome desola tion, of that vast unpeopled continent - Antarctica.

The story, which covers a period of five years' wanderings, is true. May it bring back the thrill of adventure to the old and kindle the flame of emulation and achievement in the young.
