Tim Bowden first visited and fell in love with Antarctica in 1989 and has been back five times. This is the very personal memoir of that first trip south.
With a well-tuned sense of the absurd, Tim introduces the varied personalities and eccentricities of life on board the resupply ship Icebird. He describes the danger and excitement of travel to this continent of vast and overwhelming beauty. And he coaxes frank and often moving memories from the most reticent of his fellow travellers. Antarctica and Back in Sixty Days is quintessential Bowden.
