Synopsis

Aviator, war hero, explorer, reporter, prolific writer, spy, scientist and naturalist, Hubert Wilkins (1888-1958) was the most remarkable explorer of the twentieth century. The only Allied war photographer to be decorated in battle, he was also the first man to fly in the Antarctic and to navigate a submarine under polar ice. He survived crashes and disasters, firing squads, sabotaged expeditions and even capture by Arab slavers, living long enough to be honoured by kings, presidents and dictators. Equally remarkable, however, is the fact that the man who discovered more previously unchartered land and sea than anyone before or since has remained so little known, even in his native Australia. In this highly acclaimed and extensively researched biography, Simon Nasht redresses this imbalance as he details the astounding exploits and tenacity of this extraordinary individual.
