The Doggy Men Goes Digital
The Doggy Men was written in 2006 by Falkland Islands Dependency Survey/FIDS (which became the British Antarctic Survey/BAS), veteran and doggy man Hwfa Jones. Not only did he write the book about sledging in the British Antarctic Territory since the Golden Age of Exploration, he privately published it and applied sales revenue from the 56-page, well-illustrated soft-cover book to kick start donations to the fledgling Antarctic Sledge Dog Monument Fund. Thanks to Hwfa's initiative, and with the partnership with fellow "Fid" Graham Wright, and worldwide support of many people in so many ways, in just three short years a life sized bronze statue* was dedicated at a July 4, 2009 ceremony in front of the British Antarctic Survey building in Cambridge, England.
The Doggy Men has recently gone digital and is now available for the Kindle ebook-reader. For those of you who still prefer the act of turning a physical page, Hwfa says there are still some print editions left. Either format can be purchased through Amazon's United Kingdom division. The print edition is also available by contacting Hwfa directly.
The Doggy Men is a most worthy addition to your physical or virtual bookshelf!
*A limited edition table-top sized version of the full size bronze is available, also in bronze, from the artists Cemmick and Wylder. Click on "GALLERY" and scroll down to item #36.
