Standing on the Ocean: A Layman's Arctic Adventure
Expressing the vague desire to “get out of town,” and searching for adventure, David Fanning unexpectedly finds himself on thin ice 125 miles off-shore of Deadhorse, Alaska, taking orders from an 18-year-old girl, and being tormented by the silly songs and puns of the eccentric scientist who leads the small oceanographic research team he has been hired to help. This funny, detailed, and insightful account of a month spent searching for polar bears and doing field research in the Arctic Ocean, will not only give you a better appreciation for how polar research is done, but will certainly convince you to spend your own holiday adventures in a warmer climate.
