Product Description

Fabulous sights, hair-raising escapes, jubilant homecomings, and agonizing losses abound in this unique historical adventure.

Far more complete than competing narratives of Antarctic exploration, Antarctica: Exploring the Extreme documents dozens of voyages, from the earliest days of long-distance sea travel, through the rapacious exploitation of seal and whale in the 19th century, to the 20th-century overland expeditions racing to the South Pole. The drama continues as 10 nations scramble to claim the continent, and a review of today's Antarctica by region details further expeditions as well as geology, terrain, and historical and scientific sites.

'The author looks back at the highs and lows of over 400 years of exploration...'
