"This book contains more of the natural history of the Great White Continent in a single volume than any other book you are likely to find. . . . [It] goes well beyond describing the mammals and birds, offering a general treatise on the natural history of Antarctica." --Charles F. Wurster, Quarterly Review of Biology
"With the growth of interest in ecotourism, conservation, and research in Antarctica and the Southern Oceans comes a demand for an accurate, comprehensive guide to the area's wildlife, and this is it! . . . The plates . . . are among the best I have ever seen in any guide. . . . This is without a doubt the most authoritative guide to the region's wildlife." --Wildlife Activist
" The Complete Guide to Antarctic Wildlife is a remarkable book, probably the most complete general work on the topic ever produced, with more than 500 color photographs, 35 color plates and a 381-item bibliography. But these numbers tell only part of the story. The photographs are, almost without exception, simply terrific, representing the best work of 52 different photographers, each shot chosen for it beauty or its ability to show a particular aspect of the animal¹s identifying characteristics. . . . [An] amazing and valuable book." --Jeff Rubin, The Polar Times
