Note from the Editor:
Well, I just read my blog post for the first time today and noticed a major error. With a foggy head this morning I wrote that Mawson's Will by Lennard Bickel is the biography of the Renaissance Antarctic Explorer Sir Douglas Mawson. A few years ago I read the amazing account of his survival after all that went wrong during his 1911 Antarctic expedition. I know that this unforgettable dramatic story is not a biography rather it is a Nonfiction narrative of one of the most incredible human survival stories ever put to print. Stupidity makes me feel sick to my stomach and somewhat dizzy with a little sweat building on my brow. I apologize for the potentially misleading label that I put on Mawson's Will, it was an oversight that should not have happened considering I know the definition of biography and to top it off I read the book that I was talking about.
