New York, 1991, 1st edition. 136 pp, 100+ color photos, many large format. This is a large format hardcover book with a dust jacket. New.

Due to the book's size, extra postage will be requested for Media Mail, Priority Mail or International Mail.

The book is designed in part as an introduction to Antarctica for visitors arriving by cruise ship. To most people Antarctica is a land of blizzards, isolation, endless icebound terrain and hostile beauty. It is a place where only the mad or foolish dare venture. Yet for the past 120+ years dedicated men and women have tempted fate and gone south in the name of since. Exploration and adventure. Their reasons for going to such extremes have been highly individual but their feats of endurance and courage are among the greatest this century.

This book is about the natural beauty of the land and fauna of Antarctica, and visits both the comfortable heated buildings as well as wind tossed tents.
