In the 1930 s three women are determined to travel to the Antarctic hoping to be the first woman to set foot there Two employ whatever wiles they can to board the expedition the third is an unwilling companion The opening chapters introduce us to these women after a preface by another and a chapter about one who was denied the opportunity to travel south Conseuently it took me a while to become absorbed in the book and to differentiate the five women Once aboard their personalities flaws and motivations come into focus Descriptions of the whaling business repulse us as no doubt was intended Having watched whales breach enjoying the freedom of the oceans I can be grateful that this barbaric practice has been curbed and add my voice in protest against continued Japanese slaughter The end chapters are particularly engrossing as the women reach their goal and we see how their lives are changed by the journey
