Summary
  • "These diaries describe the experiences of Cecil Thomas Madigan in Antarctica as a member of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition. There were three landed parties: one of five men on Macquarie Island led by George Frederick Ainsworth, one the Western Party of eight men on the Shackleton Ice Shelf led by John Robert Francis Wild, and the third and largest party of eighteen men led by Douglas Mawson based at Cape Denison, Commonwealth Bay... One of these outward journeys ended in tragedy on 14th December 1912. A handful of men were required to remain for a second year to recover any survivors, and until the ship 'Aurora' could again make its way through the ice to Commonwealth Bay..."--Back cover.

I have added the photographs and the plates."--Introduction by Julia Wynnis Madigan, September 2012.
