Ice Wind Rock by Peter Gouldthorpe

Ice, Wind, Rock: Douglas Mawson in the Antarctic has been shortlisted for this year's CBCA Eve Pownall information book award.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     This picture book is based on the true story of Mawson's journey to Antarctica in 1908 & 1911. Full of derring-do, adventure & discovery, this is a story of heroism & determination.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     The illustrations are wonderful - so clear and vivid - you can almost feel the desperate cold as you turn each page! It also includes a fold out map and timeline at the back.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Ice, Wind, Rock is perfect for early readers or to share in your primary school classroom. This book covers Australian history, exploration, science & environmental issues.
