A great read!
on 15 June 2015
Beautifully written and vastly knowledgeable. A wonderful book that evokes the strange Antarctic wilderness, the small community of scientists stranded on the icy base in the polar winter, previous heroic explorers, celestial observations, meteorological phenomena, the extraordinary penguins and much else.
It's the difference between junk food and real food. This is a great read!
