Praise for "1912"
"Turney successfully conveys the heroism and flaws of the early explorers as they challenged the preternatural dangers of Antarctica."--"Publishers Weekly"
"As the last continent to be discovered and explored, the history of Antarctica is relatively short; the first recorded landfall on the continent wasn't until 1821. [And] while each expedition could easily merit its own book, Turney adroitly manages to give a full portrait of each explorer and crew with giving any short shrift."--"Kirkus"
