Description - My Penguin Year: Living with the Emperors - A Journey of Discovery by Lindsay McCrae

Emperor penguins have the most extraordinary lifecycle. They march up to 100 miles over solid ice to reach their breeding grounds. They choose to breed in the depths of the worst winter on the planet; and in an unusual role reversal, the males incubate the eggs, fasting for over 100 days to ensure they introduce their chicks safely into their new frozen world.

MY PENGUIN YEAR recounts author Lindsay McCrae's adventure to the end of the Earth, spending a year living alongside the most resilient creatures in nature. He experienced every aspect of a breeding emperor's life, facing the inevitable sacrifices that came with living his childhood dream, and facing down the personal obstacles that, being over 15,000km away from the comforts of home, almost proved too much.
