Review:

'this is the definitive single-volume guide to the birds and mammals of the vast Antarctic region...this will be invaluable to thise interested in the region, whilst indispensible for those planning a trip south.' Good Book Guide (December 07) 'There is a very "live" feel to this book...However, [Shirihai's] style is sufficiently scientific to deliver the necessary detail...Most importantly, he promotes the love and protection of what should be one of the world's most cherished wild places.' W2 Books (Jan 2008) 'This former Birdwatch Bird Book of the Year is in better shape than ever, and a must if you are visiting the region.' Birdwatch (March 2008) Each species account in the book majors on identification, but also includes summaries if distribution and biology, conservation and taxonomy, and ocean-going birds and mammals get a range map. Birdwatch (Main) March 2008 ' This is a brilliantly and copiously illustrated combination of field guide. handbook and travel guide' Birds {Main} November 2008
