Antarctica is a fascinating place - it has no native inhabitants, and it's very remote and difficult to get to, which means everyone who goes there - today or in the past - has a special reason for wanting to go. It's a place that children can only imagine.

This book is about the journeys - historic and contemporary, human and animal, large and small - that build up an overall picture of Antarctic history, geography, science and wildlife.

Image rich, using photographs, maps and paintings, it also draws on letters, diaries, newspaper and eye-witness reports from the days of early exploration, as well as later research and interviews. Other features include biographies, maps, a timeline and glossary.
