What do the icy continent and its resilient inhabitants tell us about the comfortable existence of the rest of the globe?

Antarctica and its fauna as well as researchers and explorers are the heroes of David Böhm’s richly illustrated book. The South Pole of Roald Amundsen and his rival Robert Falcon Scott is the subject of this encyclopaedia-style popular science book which looks at Antarctica’s unforgiving climate, inaccessibility, potential for exploration and interconnectedness with the global ecosystem. The use of mixed media, with the incorporation of old maps and photographs, ensures the book is lively and varied.
