Native American Lore of the Threefold Miracle:
the miracle that things exist at all
the miracle that living things exist
the miracle that living things can be conscious of themselves.

  Through many dangers, toils and snares,
  We have already come;
  'Tis grace has brought us safe thus far,
  And grace will lead us home.

  Amazing Grace
  John Newton, 1779

This is the diary of a young scientist, Kevin Hand, on his first trip to Antarctica. The diary has a little science and a lot of wonder! A very enjoyable read. (I wrote the software for the scientific instrument he used.)

"I would rather live in a world where my life is surrounded by mystery than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it."

Henry Emerson Fosdick (1878-1969)
