Icebound in Antarctica
In a lively and candid narrative the authors take us behind the scenes of polar expedition-the fitting out of the ship, selection of crew, navigation through pack-ice and monster icebergs, tagging seals, studying penguins and other birdlife, sledging in blizzards and battling frostbite. Behind it all is the haunting beauty of Antarctica-the last great uncharted wilderness. This is the land of Amundsen and Scott, of Shackleton and Fuchs-a land beset with dangers, yet which still irresistibly exerts its thrall. Lewis and George's fascinating account of their adventures brings every detail alive.
