Ice On My Palette
by Maurice Conly
Text by Neville Peat

Large hardback, 1st Edition 1977, 64pages, good condition, small tear in jacket

The Ross Sea area of the vast Antarctic Continent is the main subject of this unique book. In company with two highly talented New Zealanders, both experienced Antarcticans, we follow the course of a traveller going south from Christchurch, arriving on the ice, calling at McMurdo and
then Scott Base, and concluding with a visit to South Pole Station. In the process we share their vivid impressions of the men who live there, the work being carried out in the field, the wild life, Scott's and Shackleton's historic huts and other reminders of the heroic age of exploration and, last but by no means least, the changing moods of the weather and the formidable but beautiful characteristics of the landscape.

Maurice Conly travelled widely in the Ross Sea area and the Dry Valleys, facing almost impossible difficulties of adapting hands and media to the incessant cold. He is one of very few artists who have successfully met those challenges and published an extensive collection of work created under such conditions.

Neville Peat, information officer with the Antarctic Division of the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, supplement the paintings with informed writing. His is a most eloquent statement of all that it means to spend, as he has, a full season at Scott Base.
