ON THE ICE

Expeditions to the coldest reaches of the planet are part of NZ lore. Pathologist, photographer and mountaineer Mike Gill has written a new biography of Edmund Hillary, his climbing companion for many years; debut writer Joanna Grochowicz has written the acclaimed YA novel Into The White about Robert Scott’s ill-fated expedition to Antarctica, and researched the expeditions of the Roald Amundsen and Douglas Mawson. The biographer and novelist discuss the composition of teams who undertake extreme challenges, how they come together, why they fall apart, and the implications when life is in the lap of peril, with Te Radar.
