Mawson's Mettle
Lawrence Howard tells the epic tale of Douglas MawsonJanuary 22, 23, 29, and 30

The true, epic tale of Douglas Mawson and the 1911 Australian Antarctic Expedition, written and told by Lawrence Howard.If you liked Shackleton's Antarctic Nightmare, you will love Mawson's Mettle. 

A veteran of one of Shackleton's earlier voyages, Mawson led an Australian expedition to the frozen continent in 1911. Out sledging with two other men, Mawson was thrown into peril when one of the sledges -- along with the six best dogs, most of the food and equipment, and one of his companions -- was lost in a deep crevasse. After his
Mawson's Mettle - Sledging Teamsecond companion and the rest of the dogs died, Mawson struggled
against freezing temperatures, 80 mile-per-hour winds, loneliness, grief, illness and starvation, pulling his one remaining sled for hundreds of miles. This is an epic story of survival and determination and courage that is every bit as exciting as the Shackleton saga. Tickets are really starting to sell so reserve your seats today.
