Product description


We are all anxious Antarctic watchers now, and Walker's book is the essential primer (Guardian)

The early Antarctic expeditions are thoroughly covered in this enthralling book. But, then again, so is every other aspect of a place that continues to haunt the human imagination ... Perhaps best of all, Walker gives us a fantastically vivid sense of what it's like to be in Antarctica (Readers Digest)

This is a fascinating insight into one of the most inhospitable places on Earth and its implications for the world's future (Irish Examiner)

Brimful of science, heroism, tragedy and laugh-out-loud humour, Antarctica is an exciting and informative read ... Walker interweaves personal accounts and in-depth research to tell an intimate captivating story (Kathryn Jeffs BBC Focus)

Book Description

A full and intimate portrait of the most mysterious continent on earth and how it holds the key to all our futures
