Originally published: London: Chatto & Windus, 2012
It is said to be one of our oldest stories: a young man goes to a far-off land in search of a mythical and wondrous beast. For years, Gavin Francis yearned to go to the remotest place on our planet, to see one of the strangest beasts alive. This is how he came to spend 14 months living alongside emperor penguins as the base-camp doctor at Halley.
