'Antarctica's Frozen Chosen' Discussion  Notes

................................................................................................................................................. 

  Hazel researching in Antarctica

.................................................................................................................................................

Those who are chosen to work in Antarctica are called 'the frozen chosen'.The author was on an Australian Antarctic expedition in 2001.   While 'beset' in the polar ice, Hazel started writing this novel with the expert help of the 'boffins' and 'tradies' onboard the polar re-supply ship.

When Kyle gets a job for the Antarctic summer as a marine biologist, his Spanish girlfriend Jade e-mails daily.Jade, an eco-activist is involved with an online protest group, but doesn't realise she's being used.  Patagonian Toothfish poachers!  Genetic modifications crossing over from rats to humans, quarantines the expeditioners and Kyle dicovers that courage is more than physical bravery. Saying no to your mates takes courage too.

Hazel's other Antarctic publications include  picture book Antarctic Dad,  memoir 'Antarctic Writer on ice' , Antarctic Close-up, and classroom scripts in ' Right or Wrong; Plays to Make You Think'

Available on Kindle  are Antarctic Dognapping  and Shooting Antarctica, an easy reading mystery for developing adult literacy.

'Outback Ferals' is the sequel, starring eco-warrior Kyle, but in the outback and around Darwin (NT) , tackling a pandemic threat & questions of mateship.
