Few of us will ever visit this harsh, remote land, but by reading this book we become armchair travelers, transported by Greenpeace's exquisite photography, artwork, and prose. Many short chapters provide insights into Antarctica's geography, geology, and abundant flora and fauna. The volume builds to a discussion of the human impact on the continent and to a plea for a world park to preserve the last vast, relatively pristine area of the globe. There is a warning, too, about the reaches of the human assault on nature. Even in this distant land, humans have left mounds of junk; the record of airborne pollution from across time and distance is preserved in ice, and, because of our ignorance, greed, and thoughtlessness, we have torn a hole in the ozone layer overhead. A beautiful volume with a strong environmentalist slant, this will appeal to young people and general readers alike.
