I loved reading about Antarctica and its explorers since I was a child and my cousin was stationed to Little America with the navy.
I recently read a very interesting article in Smithsonian magazine entitled "Nightmare on the Ice". With this in mind, I read "Working at the end of the World".
This book tells about the first trip of Con Curtis to Antarctica and working on the Dyer Plateau.
One section reminded me of a story my cousin told me about crossing the equator for the first time.
There are many interesting humorous anecdotes and well as serious work and travel.
There are also great photos.
I look forward to reading about the author's second journey there.
