Antarctica Adventure
By Sir Vivian Fuchs

In The Crossing of Antarctica, Sir Vivian Fuchs and Sir Edmund Hillary told the enthralling story of their accomplishment of what has been called the last great journey left to Man.

Sir Vivian Fuchs has now rewritten the wonderful story in order to appeal specially to young people, giving a complete picture of the expedition, but. concentrating on the incredible adventures which he and his comrades went through the crossing of crevasses which tried to engulf men and vehicles, the terrible punishment inflicted by miles of serrated, iron-hard ridges of ice, the blinding `whiteouts' which deprived the travellers of all sense of direction, the climbing of ice precipices and unknown mountain ranges, the perils of running out of fuel in the middle of thousands of miles of freezing emptiness. Here is a story of a feat of courage and endurance which will thrill and inspire the younger generation of today.
