9780732269159: Living on the Edge: A Year in Antarctica

Jim and Yvonne Claypole have recently returned from a truly remarkable year in Antarctica where they lived in a tiny hut chained to rocks in one of the coldest and most isolated spots on earth.

Before their year of living with extreme cold, horrendous blizzards and diminishing daylight began they found that they had captivated the interest of the Australian media and had a huge following. Despite the isolation, technology enabled them to receive e-mails from thousands of well wishers, many of whom were readers hooked to Yvonne's hugely popular articles in a weekly Australian magazine.

Everyone was fascinated by her descriptions of their lives in tiny Gadget Hut and the way that they tackled the problems of day-to-day living on the frozen continent.
