Gavin Francis fulfilled a lifetimes ambition when he spent fourteen months as the base-camp doctor at Halley, a profoundly isolated British research station on the Caird Coast of Antarctica. So remote, it is said to be easier to evacuate a casualty from the International Space Station than it is to bring someone out of Halley in winter.

Antarctica offered a year of unparalleled silence and solitude, with few distractions and very little human history, but also a rare oppurtunity to live among emperor penguins, the only species truly at home in the Antarctic. Following the penguins throughout the year -- from a summer of perpetual sunshine to months of winter darkness -- Gavin Francis explores a world of great beauty conjured from the simplest elements, the hardship of living at 50 DegreesC below zero and the unexpected comfort that the penguin community bring.

There was another motive: the silence I imagined there in Antarctica drew me south. the people, the light, the ice, the dark, the heroic history, and the amazing cycle of life of the Emperor penguins.
