DESCRIPTION: A lavishly illustrated book that captures the adventure and risk of exploring the Antarctic wastes. As with most Conway titles, the production is flawless and high quality. Many illustrations are in full colour. There are drawings, paintings and charts accurately reproduced and a white linen-style binding nicely presents the work. The collection of essays covers the history of exploration in the last great wilderness. These are inspiring stories of courage and determination. This is a book that children should read at school or at home, a book for adults, enthusiasts and those who are simply entranced by the natural world. This is a book that needed to be written and deserves to be widely read.
