Available as an Ebook

Female expeditioner. A candid account of a working writer beset in the polar ice on her journey to Casey Station in Antartica.

Product Description

Antarctica has a mystique. Few have the opportunity to become one of the 'frozen chosen' who work there. Hazel Edwards was lucky enough to join them and see first hand the challenges - both physical and psychological - that the expeditioners face. When the resupply ship.'The Polar Bird' becomes beset in the ice, the author is confined with 34 men and 4 other women expeditioners, plus the crew. Her candid account is from the unusual viewpoint of an 'older' female who was a non- scientist. Based on e-mails, articles, interviews and observations, it is a unique view, of a working writer beset in the polar ice. 

Available as a PDF copy only.
