Published by Xlibris
Written by the expedition doctor, this is the author’s diary from the historic Chinese Antarctic expedition to build Kunlun Station in the middle of the immense Antarctic ice sheet. The expedition team not only had to ascend over four thousand meters at temperatures of sixty Fahrenheit below zero while fighting through snowstorms, they also had to overcome all sorts of difficulties, such as constantly changing plans, impossible loads, discontented construction workers, and low pay. Were they taking crazy risks? Was the expedition a foolish endeavor? The author’s account is a vivid, truthful description of this great expedition undertaken by a team of moving individuals who aren’t without their flaws and crude, or even sometimes rule-breaking, behavior. It is a story worth reading.
