Of Dogs and Men: 50 Years in the Antarctic




A nostalgic and affectionate look back at the history of dogs in Antarctica, as well as a unique tribute to man's oldest friend. The whole story: from collecting the dogs and shipping them down from Greenland and Labrador; through developing aspects of training, feeding, breeding and travel; to the advent of motorised vehicles, the phasing out of dogs and the final journey that took them to new homes in Canada. The book includes contributions from some fifty of Antarctica's explorers and scientists, and over 150 superb colour photographs.
