In February 1994 the last remaining huskies were banished from Antarctica. Saying goodbye was an emotional moment for for members of the BAS, whose same line of dogs had served for fifty years. Walton, who witnessed the arrival of dogs in the 1940s, and Atkinson who was in Antarctica when the use of dogs was coming to an end, are well placed to tell the story; from collecting the dogs in Greenland and Labrador; through developing aspects of training, nutrition, breeding and sledging; to the advent of motorized vehicles, the phasing out of dogs, and the final journey that took them to Canada. This book marks the end of an era.
