Elizabeth This is an autobiography about a woman physician who was on assignment in Antartica when she discovers she has breast cancer and has to be rescued. Circa 2000? For some reason I think the title is similar to Icebound but I'm not able to find it under that. Help please!

Krista the Krazy Kataloguer (kristathekrazykataloguer) | 104 comments The book is Ice Bound: a Doctor's Incredible Battle for Survival at the South Pole by Jerri Nielsen (Hyperion Books, 2001). Probably the reason you couldn't find it is because Ice Bound is 2 words and you were looking for it as one word.

Lisa Vegan (lisavegan) | 1382 comments Yes, it is a really good book. Thanks everybody! Elizabeth, if you want to, you can add the book to this group's bookshelf, or you can ask to have it done. I don't think most members have been doing that; it's completely optional but fun to have a record of all the books found here.

Which means the rescue gave her 11 years she would not have otherwise had.
