This book is a narrative of the British Graham Land Expedition (1934-1937) describing in a very general way our plans and our travels; the country and the climate; our pleasures and our disappointments. The results of our efforts other than exploratory, and such new problems an theories int he realms of geology, biology, meteorology and so on that we were able to give rise to, are not described. But it must be remembered that throughout the expedition scientists were doing their best to make the most of every opportunity that was offered.
