about

A mix of history, geography, myth, and personal truth, this book explores the Antarctic Peninsula, the South Shetland Islands, and the Weddell Sea—the most visited places in Antarctica. Filled with beautiful photographs by the author from his travels, this record offers a selection of anecdotal accounts of the merchantmen, navy men, sealers, whalers, and aviators who, along with scientists and adventurers, drew the first ghostly maps of the white continent. It delves into the heads and hearts of those who were driven to discover the unknown land and is ideal for the armchair traveler who wants to explore the continent’s past and present.

John Harrison is the author of Cloud Road and is a reviewer for the Mail on Sunday and the New Welsh Review. He is the recipient of the Wales Book of the Year Award and the winner of the inaugural Alexander Cordell Travel Writing Competition.
