About

Account of David Lewis and his small yacht, Ice Bird, that set sail from Sydney, Australia, on a search for high adventure - his own single handed circumnavigation of the Antarctic continent.

No one had ever sailed a yacht single-handed to Antarctica until David Lewis' attempt. Along the way, he would not touch land for more than fourteen weeks, facing mountainous seas, constant gales, snow storms, and freezing temperatures. Twice his small yacht was capsized and once it was dismasted 3,500 miles from help. His survival was a miracle of fortitude, skill, and some luck.

Illustrated throughout with monochrome and colour images plus drawings, maps on endpapers.
