Thanks to Nicholas Johnson for putting this site together, and thanks again to Nick for a friendship and writing critique that has spanned many years and a few continents. More than anyone, Nick has helped me clarify and expand my thinking about the Antarctic. With Big Dead Place, his book and website, he has done more than any other writer to introduce honestly to the world the everyday realities of American Antarctica.
