Exploring the Extreme : 400 Years of AdventureBook - 2001
Far more complete than competing narratives of Antarctic exploration, this travel adventure documents dozens of voyages, from the earliest days of long-distance sea travel through the rapacious exploitation of seal and whale in the 19th century to the 20th-century expeditions racing to the South Pole. 25 photos.
