Summary

An exciting account of revolutionary new discoveries for understanding the earth's climate, and their implications for future scientific research and global environmental policy.


"Lost! Crawling on my hands and knees through the howling snowstorm, I didn't have time to be scared. But the thought did cross my mind that this might be my last expedition to Antarctica. I couldn't see a thing in the whiteout conditions of the blizzard; all I could do was follow the tracks of the sled and hope that John would realize I had fallen off and come back to look for me . . . He didn't know at first that I hadn't had time to rope back onto the sled because the wind was gusting so hard we couldn't hear one another. After about fifteen minutes, he realized I wasn't on the sled any more, and turned around. John had started following the snowmobile tracks back while I crawled along them toward him, and we literally ran into each other. I got back on the sled and held on!" -- Paul Andrew Mayewski on leading the first US expedition to Northern Victoria Land, Antarctica in 1974 - 75
