It was a journey long thought impossible. The Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1957/58, led by Vivian ‘Bunny’ Fuchs, was one of the 20th century’s triumphs of exploration – a powerful expression of technological daring as much as a testament of sheer, bloody-minded human willpower. As a key member of the expedition, Everest veteran George Lowe was there to capture it all in photographs and on film. Awe-inspiring landscapes, candid portraits and action shots evoke the day-by-day moments as the expedition travelled 2158 miles across snow and ice, facing extraordinary challenges and dangers. Unpublished images and other rare materials from the Lowe archives are brought together here for the first time, along with others from the Fuchs family collection. This book makes an excellent companion to the six others on this expedition written by Arnold, Fuchs, Haddelsey, Helm, Hillary, and Martin.
