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.
