Fifteen Million Years in Antarctica – Rebecca Priestley – Marlborough Book Fest
In conversation with Nikki Macdonald
Should we be paralysed by fear or optimistic for the world future generations will inherit? Rebecca experiences both emotions in her eco-memoir, 'Fifteen Million Years in Antarctica', reflecting on her three visits to Antarctica.
The book was praised by reviewers and longlisted for the general non-fiction award at the 2020 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards.
She discusses the science carried out in Antarctica; her awe for the landscape and wildlife; and her concerns and hope for the future.
