DESCRIPTION:

An Alien in Antarctica is an eminent polar scientist's account of six expeditions to the "frozen continent" while working with the US Antarctic Program. The book combines first-person narrative and outstanding photography to record the events, the feelings, the results, and the memories of conducting research in one of Earth's most remote and hostile environments. This book is not just about science, but about adventures in the pursuit of science.
