Dr. Sharadindu Mukerji was associated with geological investigations in Antarctica for nearly 26 years out of his 37 year long career with the geological survey of India. During this period he visited the South Polar Region four times in various capacities and spent two full winters in the frozen continent. In 1991-92 he led the Eleventh Indian Expedition to Antarctica and was also the Station Commander for the Ninth Winter Team at Maitri station. Between 1985 and 2009 his visits to Antarctica spanned between Dronning Maud Land in the East Antarctica and King George Island via Weddell Sea in the West. In this delightful book Sharadindu shares in a very lucid style his first hand experiences in Antarctica. The narration is free of scientific jargons and focuses on the life as one faces there. Thus, it not only makes the book read like a story full of thrill and adventure but also acts as a guide book for new age visitors to Antarctica.
