Synopsis: Dr. David Lewis tells of his latest expedition in which he sailed to Antarctica in the winter to be intentionally icebound. Much more than a sailor's tale of a voyage of exploration, it is a revelation of the human spirit under duress. Photographs.
From Publishers Weekly:
Lewis, world sailor and writer (Icebird), conceived of a research expedition to Antarctica: a frozen-in ship would serve as base for studies of sea ice and wildlife while the team would master the techniques of ice sledding and camping. Anthropologist George would examine stress among the participantsa situation comparable to space stations with people isolated in a hostile environment. Three men and one woman joined Lewis and George for the 16-month expedition, sailing from Australia on a 65-foot motor schooner, the Dick Smith Explorer. They were strangers; unlike close-knit climbing expeditions, they had few common interests or goals. From the beginning, there was discord. Ultimately, one individual had to be flown out by helicopter when his behavior threatened the group's safety. Despite the stresses, the expedition achieved its scientific goals and returned safely. In an afterword, Lewis is sharply critical of U.S. policy in Antarctica that permits only official visitors; he advocates private projects. This is a gripping story of adventure spiced by interpersonal conflict. Portions of the book previously appeared in National Geographic. Photos.
