White Horizon

A journalist’s account of Fuchs’ attempt to rescue 11 men stranded for three years at Stonington Island, the southernmost base of the Falklands Survey. A bit of adventure but a poorly written book that doesn’t even bother to say what year he sailed with the John Biscoe [1947].

p. 74, only reference to books on the ship: In one corner stood a small library of polar books. [No indication that anyone read them.]
