By: Tony Soper
A Bradt Travel Guide
5th Edition - 2008
Paperback: 160 pages
Surrounded by the vast Southern Ocean- which harbours the greatest concentration of seabirds on the planet- Antarctica is a richly rewarding destination. Albatrosses keep station as you cross the Furious Fifties and the Screaming Sixties: great whales may surface alongside your ship; seals and penguins greet your arrival ashore with lively interest.
Written by renowned expedition leader Tony Soper and illustrated with specially commissioned paintings by Dafila Scott - granddaughter of Scott of the Antarctic- this fully-revised fifth edition now also includes a basic guide to the wildlife of the Falkland Islands.
'For anyone Antarctica-bound, this is THE book. Tony Soper's facts and Dafila Scott's drawings cover the essentials of all the living things you will see and introduce the drama of the stage itself. Vital as longjohns.' - Keith Shackleton
