Swithinbank, an eminent British glaciologist, has had more places named after him than any living explorer. This is a first-person narrative of his experiences, working with the US Antarctic Research Program over a span of 40 years, from digging snow pits and hand coring-holes, dangling from a helicopter to survey ice movements, to radar ice sounding from an 'armchair' while flying on very long flights across the continent. He kept very detailed journals from which this book is drawn.
