"So gripping you will not want to put it down" - Science Teacher (a National Science Teachers Association Outstanding Book)

In the Antarctic Winter of 1911 - waiting to assist Robert Falcon Scott in his bid to conquer the South Pole - three extraordinary men decided to amuse themselves with a side-expedition. The point was to test a theory about bird evolution by collecting and studying the eggs of the Emperor penguin. They set out into the perpetual winter dark hauling two sleds with a combined weight of over 700 lb. Everything went wrong.
