Detailed Product Description
Australia, 1999. 593 pp, many color and b/w photos. Thick paperback. Fine 

On Boxing Day in 1947, members of the first Australian National Antarctic Research Expedition (ANARE) gathered around a makeshift flag pole for a ceremony of possession at Atlas Cove on Australia's remote Southern Ocean outpost of Heard Island. So began the life of a unique Antarctic community which celebrates its 50th anniversary in 1997.
 
The Silence Calling is the culmination of four years' work by noted broadcaster and historian Tim Bowden, who was commissioned by the Australian Antarctic Division to write the ANARE jubilee history. A fascinating and often moving account, it traces the development of ANARE from that first settlement up to the present day. Thousands of men and women from all over Australia and from many backgrounds have lived, worked and, indeed, played in that dangerous, hostile and overwhelmingly beautiful environment to become part of Australia s Antarctic legend.
 
However, The Silence Calling is not just about personal endeavor and hardship. It is about exploration, discovery and Australia s significant contribution to international scientific research. With four major Antarctic stations and its own Australian-built ice-breaking research ship, ANARE is now leading the way in the study of global warming and climate change.Since his first visit with ANARE in 1989, Tim Bowden has spent many months in Antarctica in pursuit of the elusive qualities that make ANARE and its people unique.
 
He has interviewed past and present expeditioners and undertaken archival and documentary research dating back to the 1930s to delve in to the heart of ANARE. The story he tells combines courage, endurance, humor, beauty, drama and personal tragedy to trace the achievements of an extraordinary community of people.Tim Bowden is an acclaimed historian, broadcaster, and radio and television documentary maker who has been broadcasting, writing and researching Australian activities.
