An amazing story that is told about Dr. Jerri Nielsen who was had everything going against her at the ends of the earth and her courage and strength that got her thru the ordeal, including the 109 Air Lift Wing out of New York, who someone incorrectly attributes to the Canadian air force.

While some of the parts seem campy, or silly or do not make any sense. It rings true to the hundreds of men and women who winter'd over on 'the ice' especially at the pole. The duress the body is put thru is amazing, both physically and psychologically. This story looks to me as true as you might be able to get away from the pole itself.
