About This BookWalter Dean Myers presents a thrilling record of Antarctica and the expedition parties that have uncovered the frozen continent throughout history.
The dramatic race to the South Pole is brought to life in Antarctica, tracking the explorers of the South Pole. The heroism and adventure-and the ultimate failure-of the expeditions are depicted in Myers' powerful prose, and through the photos, maps, and illustrations that complement the text.
