This is the dramatic and true story of Dr. Jerri Nielsen, the physician stranded at a South Pole research station as she discovers a lump in her breast. Inspiring, funny (Jerri has a great sense of humor), this book recounts the amazing rescue in October 1999 that made headlines around the globe.
I read the Reader's Digest Condensed version years ago, so I picked up this book to read "the rest of the story," and was glad I did!

I loved this book. This woman had courage. This is the true story about a woman so strong with the will to live and to finish a job she went to do. The everyday and, out of the ordinary things that could go wrong did, the temps were 100 degrees below zero in the Antarctica with no way in or out before spring, finding breast cancer she must make decissions that will have to be done to save her own life. I have read this book twice and each time it has given me much enjoyment and inspiration.

I really didn't think I was going to like this book as much as I did. However, when I got started, the memoir grabbed my attention and held it the whole way. This is a memoir of an American doctor's time at a scientific station in the South Pole. The woman at the center of this story is incredibly smart, funny, warm, and fun - just the type of person I would want as a real life friend. Dr. Jerri Nielsen passed away not too long ago, but her account of her time at the South Pole as a doctor is very inspiring. The writing is very personable and amazingly easy to read. You feel as though you're chatting with her over a cup of coffee. If nothing else, this memoir will restore your faith in human nature. She allows us into a world rarely seen - the tiny, but fiercely loyal and incredibly bright people who work at the various research stations at the South Pole.
