Led by New Zealander Bob Thomson this is the story of the Wikes-Vostok Antarctic Traverse party which travelled 900 miles over the uncharted Antarctic plateau from Wilkes, the Australian station on the coast to Vostok, the Russian station at the Southern Geomagnetic Pole.
Setting off from Wilkes Station with Weasel and Caterpillar tractors and sledges filled with the most modern equipment, in blizzards tractors get buried, and at temperatures 60, 80, even 100 degrees below freezing a diesel engine might take four or five hours to get started.
and they met many blizzards, many whiteouts, during their slow and dangerous traverse, but they travelled the 900 miles to Vostok and back to Wilkes again without mishap, experiencing the coldest temperatures that man has ever known.
The Coldest Place On Earth is a warm book, a story of comradship in the face of almost insuperable odds, evoking for the reader the remoteness, mystery, and epic qualities of Antarctica.
