A modern classic of Antarctic exploration, beautifully rejacketed to join The Magnetic North

About the Author

Sara Wheeler's books include the international bestseller Terra Incognita: Travels in Antarctica, of which the Telegraph reviewer wrote, 'I do not think there will ever be a better book on the Antarctic.' The Magnetic North: Notes from the Arctic Circle, was chosen as Book of the Year by Will Self, Michael Palin, A. N. Wilson and others. She has published two biographies of travellers: Cherry: A Life of Apsley Cherry-Garrard, and Too Close to the Sun: The Life and Times of Denys Finch Hatton, and was immensely relieved to write about women at last in O My America!. She lives in London.

Reviews

"Antarctica could hope for no better chronicler: spirited, humorous and highly intelligent, she is also a writer of rare talent" * Observer * "Penetrating, vivacious and often amusing, Wheeler's record has a sharp authenticity" * The Times * "She writes with a consistent wry wit... she never lacks empathy, compassion or generosity for people whose values, background and gender were the polar opposite of hers...What she has done could not be done better" * Independent * "Her book is an impressive achievement, one genuinely brushed by the ghosts of the past" -- Beryl Bainbridge * Literary Review * "Terra Incognita deserves to be a bestseller...a wonderful book and terrific corrective to the polar bulldust periodically emitted by Sir Ralph Wotsisname and others of his ilk" * Daily Telegraph *
