A Young Man's Extraordinary Adventure to Antarctica.
With a large slice of Romance for adventure Laurie Gwen Sharpio writes about a boy with a dream of explore the continent of Antarctica and actually finds himself on a Polar expedition. It may seem fanciful but in 1929 young Billy Gawronski made himself famous by hitching a lift on a boat bound for the coldest pl;ace on earth.
The book looks at Billy and his family in the context of the adventure as well as his young and later life. Most of the running time is given over to his polar expedition but the social framing of his life is important to the overall feel of the book.
