Riassunto: Nonfiction narrative of a couple's two-year voyage from Sweden to Antarctica aboard their 40-foot sailboat, during which they allow themselves to be frozen into an isolated Antarctic Pennisula anchorage where they stay through the winter for a total of one year. An ambitious expedition carried out with thorough planning and superb seamanship. The sights, sounds, and thoughts of bluewater voyaging and an Antarctic winter conveyed through easy-flowing text and first-class photos.

Recensione: In 1989, Deborah Shapiro and Rolf Bjelke willingly set sail for a land of ice and snow. Their goal (reminiscent of the Age of Exploration): to captain a 40-foot sailboat, the Northern Light, from Sweden to the Antarctic Peninsula and back, and overwinter in one of the earth's most beautiful yet inhospitable places. During the 28,000-nautical-mile trip, they endured battering seas, treacherous ice flows, and complete isolation while frozen at the bottom of the world. Time on Ice is the result of their struggles and ultimate achievement. In alternating chapters, the married coauthors recount a remarkable three-year odyssey that peaks with their interment in an Antarctic winter. But the awe-inspiring vistas, seldom-seen wildlife, and personal discoveries far outweigh the dangers. This is a fascinating journey to one of the world's wildest and loneliest places.
