Lindsay McCrae grew up wanting to be a wildlife videographer. His ultimate dream, though, was to film emperor penguins in Antarctica. So when BBC Studios approached him with an incredible offer—eleven months filming emperors on the world's southernmost continent—he left behind his cozy home, his new wife, and all the comforts of civilization to live in Neumayer III Research Station in some of the harshest conditions on the planet. In My Penguin Year, McCrae documents his journey, from survival training and the stresses of living in such an isolated location, to the joys and sorrows he experienced alongside the penguins as they battled to not only survive, but to reproduce and thrive during the darkest, coldest days of the year. With a candid voice accompanied by McCrae's own photos, My Penguin Year is a touching and honest account of an adventure few will ever experience. (SM)
