In 1979, geophysicist Big Dee leaves his comfortable family life in suburban Perth to pursue a lifelong dream to spend a year away to Antarctica as a researcher. He gambles on leaving his loved ones and exposing himself to the rigours of loneliness, deprivation and the extreme cold.
In his quest to survive in this dark and foreign world, Big Dee learns not just about the science he has been sent to do, but also about his fellow men and more importantly, himself.
Meet author Brian Gaull (Big Dee himself) at Fremantle City Library and find out about his fascinating journey.
