This is an auction for ON BLUE ICE: A NOT VERY BRAVE JOURNEY TO ANTARCTICA by Kim Griggs. review:

“Antarctica holds a special place in New Zealanders' hearts. Since 1923 New Zealanders have had their own slice of Antarctica. But the claim is much more than just territorial: Antarctica's geography, adventures and tragedies are all part of what keeps New Zealand connected to its southern neighbour. In 2001, Kim Griggs forged her own connection with Antarctica when she was selected to go to Antarctica as a journalist for Antarctica New Zealand's media programme. This is funny, elegant and observant writing about one New Zealand woman's adventure in Antarctica. She interleaves a lively and entertaining account of her own journey and the people she met there with the many other connections between Antarctica and New Zealand. ON BLUE ICE includes two eight-page colour sections of fascinating and candid shots of Antarctica and some of the New Zealanders who work there. Kim Griggs has been a journalist for 20 years, working around the world in places like Tokyo, London and Sydney.”
