About this Item

Dust jacket has small nick at the top of spine edge, otherwise without flaw. Signed "Ranulph Finnes" on title page. End page maps. Illustrated throughout with glosy black-and-white photographs. In the autumn 1970 Ranulph Fiennes led an extraordinary expedition to the Jostedals glacier in Norway. He and his companions parachuted down on to the dangerous ice surface, their purpose being to survey the glacier and estimate its rate of movement since the last survey, also to collect specimens of the minuscule forms of life which survive in this environment. Their research completed they had to climb down a sheer icefall and cross a raging river in dreadful weather. It was a tough and dangerous journey, and its telling is full of excitment.
