Product description


A heavyweight tome in every sense of the word… if you're going to purchase just one book on the Antarctic then this must surely be it. || Everything you wanted to know about Antarctica in a book as beautiful (and nearly as big) as the White Continent. Stunning images plus in-depth info on geology, flora and fauna, history and exploration. || From start to finish, this is a beautifully produced book: facts, figures, maps, diagrams, biographies of polar explorers and tales of famous expeditions. Every question you've ever had about the continent is answered, along with a great many you would never have thought to ask.
