A stark and inhospitable place, its landscape poses a challenge to survival; yet its strange silent beauty has long fascinated scientists and adventurers. Now Antarctica faces and uncertain future. The international treaty that protects the continent is about to dissolve, clearing the way for Antarctica’s resources and eerie beauty to be plundered. As politicians and corporations move to determine its fate a half a world away, radical environmentalists carry out a covert campaign of sabotage to reclaim the land. The winner of this critical battle will determine the future of this last great wilderness…

"The epic of Antarctica. This is the James A. Mitchner novel of the South Pole. If the meaty one-word title didn’t give it away the writing would. The whole human history of the continent is here.” – Interzone

 "Antarctica should be included in any short list of books about the frozen continent….Compelling characters….a rich and dense story…Robinson has succeeded in drawing human characters but also it brings Antarctica to life. Whatever happens in the outer world, Antarctica – both the book and the continent – will become part of the reader’s interior landscape.” The Washington Post Book World
