A very good copy with very scarce published band with Vivian Fuchs' review of the book on first publication 'This is a fascinating book in which Kevin Walton has written a tree story with strength and accuracy. He describes the difficulties and pleasures of Antarctic travel, the affection of a driver for his dogs, the improvisations and techniques of travel. All through one feels the author's enthusiasm for the live he was leading and with him one regrets when it is all over'.
