LAND OF THE SNOW MEN is a collection of visionary stories and renderings taken from the journals of the enigmatic George Belden, who claimed to be on the tragic expedition led by Robert Falcon Scott to reach the South Pole in 1910 through 1912. Norman Lock discovered Belden and his remarkable journal by accident. He had been for some years in Africa, writing a novel, A History of the Imagination. The strain of living in a country as alien as Africa, with little money and little hope of finding a publisher, caused him to have a nervous breakdown. A friend in Mombassa contacted his wife, who arranged for his return and commitment to a private sanitarium in Vermonts Green Mountains. During the final weeks of Locks recuperation, the institutions chief of staff asked if he would sort through boxes of old files in the sanitariums basement to determine whether or not any should be kept. In one of those boxes, Lock found LAND OF THE SNOW MEN.
