The dog-sledge journey, described in detail in Gould's book Cold: the Record of an Antarctic Sledge Journey (Brewer, Warren & Putnam, 1931), was a grueling trek featuring snow bridges that collapsed into deep crevasses, blinding blizzards, and weather so cold that it nearly froze their eyelids shut.
