Scott Base Antarctica - The Early Years
Scott Base Antarctica - The Early Years
Webster, Don
Published by Don Webster, 2018, 268 pages. For two periods in the early 1960s young science technician Don Webster wintered over in Antarctica, helping build extensions to the New Zealand station at Scott Base. It was barely two years after Sir Edmond Hillary’s support of the 1957-58 Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Don describes in detail the design and construction of the buildings of the base, providing an invaluable historical record of both the physical base itself and also of daily life there in the summers and winters of those early years. Storms, severe cold and aircraft accidents are described in vivid detail. The book has 370 photographs many never before published.
