AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Lots of families have parents who work away from home.  When Dad works in Antarctica for a year, this family keep in touch by e-mail, digital photos and other ways. Fiction, but factually based due to Hazel's Antarctic expedition experience with the Australian Antarctic Division at Casey station.

'Antarctic vehicles, wildlife and family 'keeping in touch' rituals are accurately drawn by illustrator Kevin Burgemeestre . Also a useful source for students studying Antarctica.'  (Publication summary)
