Summary
Guyon Warren was one of a small group of men who spent 15 consecutive months in the Antarctic in the late 1950s. He helped establish Scott Base, right from the construction of the first hut. However, it is with his explorations out on the ice that he made his greatest contribution. Learning about the experiences he had makes for fascinating reading. Warren has chronicled a unique script. In it he rewards you with insights into the day-to-day conditions experienced by himself and his colleagues in the Antarctic. He is candid, revealing and honest in his thoughts and impressions. In the late 1950s Antarctica was the scene of intense activity. Fuchs planned to lead an expedition to cross the icy continent via the South Pole. He was to be met partway by a support team led by Sir Edmund Hillary. Thus the Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1957-58 was born. The International Geophysical Year coincided with the timing of this trans-polar crossing. As a part of this, New Zealand set about establishing a scientific station in Antarctica. Warren was a member of Sir Edmund Hillary's Ross Sea Party and a geologist. While on the ice he completed pioneering geological and topographical explorations over a huge area
