Tim Bowden’s account of his journeys to the Antarctic combine adventure, exploration, social history, human endeavour and humour in the most isolated continent on earth.
With a well-tuned sense of the absurd, Tim introduces the varied personalities and eccentricities of life on board the resupply ship Icebird. He describes the danger and excitement of travel to this continent of vast and overwhelming beauty. And he coaxes frank and often moving memories from the most reticent of his fellow travellers. Antarctica and Back in Sixty Days is quintessential Bowden.
