Illustrated. Basilisk narrates the adventures and misadventures of an Antarctic Expedition – a tough assignment, but Basilisk was a tough, resilient dog. He survived storms and blizzards to lead a dog-team over treacherous icefields. He adored the beautiful Alexandra; he also rebelled and chased penguins. With Swiss trainer, Mertz, he had fun and faced huge challenges – and then things got worse.
