Synopsis: Fabulous sights, hair-raising escapes, jubilant homecomings, and agonizing losses abound in this unique historical adventure. Far more complete than competing narratives of Antarctic exploration, Antarctica: Exploring the Extreme documents dozens of voyages, from the earliest days of long-distance sea travel, through the rapacious exploitation of seal and whale in the 19th century, to the 20th-century overland expeditions racing to the South Pole. The drama continues as 10 nations scramble to claim the continent, and a review of today?s Antarctica by region details further expeditions as well as geology, terrain, and historical and scientific sites.
About the Author: Marilyn J. Landis was trained as a geologist and earth scientist specializing in Antarctica. Now a freelance writer, she traveled to Antarctica seven times to research this book.
