Murphy was an interesting person. He spent some of his teen years on an Arctic whaler, then was recruited by British Intelligence to spy, in drag, following an all-to-convincing role as a woman in a play, and, finally, to the Antarctic. The bulk of this book focuses on the latter and Murphy’s participation in Mawson’s 1911-14 Australasian Antarctic Expedition.
