by AS Helm and JH Miller

Here is the official account of the New Zealand Party of the Trans-Antarctic Expedition, from the time I was merely the dream of a few seemingly visionary enthusiasts until the party returned triumphant having achieved all its objects.

Both authors have an intimate knowledge of their subject, for both were closely associated with the expedition, Mr AS Helm as Secretary of the Ross Sea Committee, and Mr JH Miller as Deputy-Leader if the New Zealand Party.

The history of the famous “heroic age” explorations of Ross, Scott, Shackleton, and Byrd leads logically to Sir Edmund Hillary and the pat play by New Zealander. The long and hard struggle for the necessary finance – the most difficult part of any polar venture – is set out, together with the intricate planning and bewildering list of items that are needed for such a project. Tribute is paid to those who made the expedition possible; the hard-working Ross Sea Committee, the various local organisations and individuals who raised the money, the generous donors, and the men who went South. Nor is the Antarctic crossing of Sir Vivian Fuchs and his men overlooked.
