Detailed Product Description
Australia, 1988, 1st edition. 159 pp, many b/w and color photos. Large format hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.

This is a large format book. Extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail and International Mail.

A chronicle of the author's Australian Antarctic expeditions, exploration, scientific experimentation, observations, and findings. Mystery and isolation, harshness and challenge, icescape and wildlife: this is the Antarctic frontier today. Rowan Butler describes life in this unique environment as he writes about highlights of four expeditions, between 1981 and 1986, to the frozen continent of the south.
 
Whether sailing down a corridor of icebergs, selecting crevasses for a film, tackling equipment problems, enjoying a midwinter feast or exploring little-known islands, the author discovers and exquisite world revealing the grandeur and intricacies of creation. This personal account is enhanced by the author's own photographs in both color and black-and-white.
