This is a gorgeous book with all you ever wanted to know about the Earth s most unusual and inspiring destination . . . Even those who don t plan to go to Antarctica any time soon will love this inspirational book. "Destinations"" Worth buying for the illustrations alone . . . some of the best photographs of Antarctic wildlife I have seen. A pleasant change from the standard bird standing in the water shots of many field guides . . . an excellent souvenir for any passenger to the area. "Polar Record"" "This guide is a must for (non-pointy-headed) visitors thinking of going to Antarctica." Nikki Landow, "Independent""
