The only mammal on earth able to survive year-round in the most extreme Antarctic temperatures is the Weddell seal, and it holds a wealth of knowledge for scientists. This is the story of a dedicated group that went to Antarctica to study this largely unknown creature. In the course of the journey, they learned that every day in this harsh climate brings with it the possibility of blizzards, frostbite, and high winds. On the coldest, driest, and windiest continent on the planet, there is scant room for error. Yet, this intrepid group, led by the author, managed to find not only the seals in this wilderness, but other, never-before-seen life forms on the ocean floor.
