Innocents in Dry Valleys by Colin Bull
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In the summer of 1958, physicist Colin Bull, along with a biologist and two undergraduate geology students from Victoria University of Wellington, launched an exploration of the Dry Valleys of Victoria Land, Antarctica - the first of what has become an annual expedition spanning the past fifty years. "With Innocents in Dry Valleys Bull" recounts the story of that first, shoestring expedition, bringing a dry wit - and a clear appreciation of youthful bravado - to accounts of adverse conditions, recurrent dangers, funding snafus, and bureaucratic meddling. Innocents in Dry Valleys is a winning account of a landmark expedition, sure to interest scientists and armchair explorers alike.
