First Lines: Douglas Mawson - Home of the Blizzard

The chief object of this Australasian Antarctica Expedition was to investigate, as far as possible, the stretch of prospective but practically unknown Antarctica coast extending almost two thousand miles in an east and west direction, between the farthest west of the Terra Nova and the farthest east of the Gauss -  a new sphere west of the region visited by Scott and Shackleton.
