Book Overview

Antarctica is the most alien place on the planet, the only part of the earth where humans could never survive unaided. Out of our fascination with it have come many books, most of which focus on only one aspect of its unique strangeness. None has managed to capture the whole story—until now.

Drawing on her broad travels across the continent, in Antarctica Gabrielle Walker weaves all the significant threads of life on the vast ice sheet into an intricate tapestry, illuminating what it really feels like to be there and why it draws so many different kinds of people. With her we witness cutting-edge science experiments, visit the South Pole, lodge with American, Italian, and French researchers, drive snowdozers, drill ice cores, and listen for the message Antarctica is sending us about our future in an age of global warming.

This is a thrilling trip to the farthest reaches of earth by one of the best science writers working today.

  • Amazing descriptions of Antartica

    Gabrielle Walker has done an outstanding job of presenting Antartica as a living and evolving mystery and, at the same time, exposing how this seemingly unbecoming part of the world is both fascinating, dangerous, beautiful and and frail. The history, the science and the geography all intertwined makes for thoroughly entertaining and informative reading. I will be looking at more of her books.
