An outstanding, beautifully produced, informative book. I thoroughly recommend it- for both history and nature buffs alike. To read through, or dip in, and to impress on coffee tables.

A wonderful book linger over,especially after visiting Antartica.... EA Wilson was such an exceptional man and combined so many qualities that it's difficult to decide what to admire most - the fabulous watercolours of the subtlety coloured Antartic landscapes ,or charming and technically correct wildlife, or those pictures connected to his extraordinary polar journeys. It says a lot about the man that he was able to do a cartoon of the traumatic climax of the "Worst Journey in the World " ..... I just loved the book and will treasure it .
