Of Dogs And Men.


Pressure from environmentalists and the more efficient mechanical vehicles meant that in 1994 the working dogs were removed from Antarctica. This book gives a nostalgic look back at this unique period in history. Kevin Walton, who witnessed the arrival of the dogs come in the 1940's and Rick Atkinson, who was in the Antarctica when the use of the dogs came to an end, are well placed to tell the story in its entirety: from collecting the dogs, training, nutrition, breeding and aspects of sledging. Some excellent photographs combine to make this a modern record of dogs of the Antarctic Survey 1944-1994. Published 1996 Images Publishing.
