C. Ian Jackson was one of four graduate students who spent a year on northern Ellesmere Island, manning a weather station for Operation Hazen'--Canada's contribution to the International Geophysical Year (IGY) 1957-58. In engrossing narrative, the author conveys the sense of isolation, the claustrophobic living conditions, and the efforts needed to avoid tedium and personal conflicts among members of the expedition. The loss of radio contact for several months provides the book with its title. The narrative is based on a 180-page letter jackson wrote to his fiancee during the period they were out of touch, and on subsequent letters during the remaining 12 months.
