This is an auction for CALL OF THE ICE: FIFTY YEARS OF NEW ZEALAND IN ANTARCTICA, by David L Harrowfield.

"New Zealanders have always been at the cutting edge of exploration and research of Antarctica and this vast southern continent has loomed large in our collective psyche as a site of heroic exploration, legendary 'Kiwi' ingenuity and fascinating scientific discoveries. Since 1957, New Zealand has had an official presence in Antarctica, establishing one of the first permanent bases on the Ice at Scott Base. This book is a celebration not only of Antarctica, and more specifically the Ross Sea region, but also of the many men and women who have contributed to our understanding of this unique environment and its impact on our world."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: David L Harrowfield is a long-standing and revered member of the Antarctic community. He first visited Antarctica in 1974 as a field technician. Since then, he has made numerous visits to the Ice, working at the historic huts on Ross Island and at Cape Adare, as a geomorphologist, and as a lecturer and guide on tour ships. He has published extensively on the conservation of historic huts and co-authored with Richard McElrea Polar Castaways, the definitive story of the Shackleton Ross Sea party 1914-1917.
