Synopsis

Gavin Francis fulfilled a lifetime's ambition when he spent fourteen months as the base-camp doctor at Halley, an isolated British research station on the Caird Coast of Antarctica. He explores a world of beauty and hardship, living at 50°C below zero, and the unexpected comfort that the penguin community bring.
