Format: Hardcover
This book is mostly photographs, taken by Sebastian Copeland during a recent voyage to Antarctica. There is little text, so a child interested more in pictures, and especially one interested in photography, can revel in the views he gives us of this continent. His love and concern for the coldest places of our world comes through loud and clear.

This book when placed into the hands of a child they get it. They understand through the beauty and majesty of the photography that there is an important story being told. When my little niece saw this book she said she felt sad that for the lonely penguin on the cover. She wanted to know if there was a way to help him. When I asked her what she thought of the book she said she like the pictures a lot.
You will too.

I am a composer and production supervisor of a documentary on wildlife refuges in la. Why would NOAA hire two guys with backgrounds in the arts to document these refuges. Because they are desperate. They know what is in store for the future. The so-call debate over global warming, data skewing, and political positions will soon be a thing of the past. Nature is not a democrat or a republican, it is just going to do what it is going to do.

The same reason that two icebreakers are now stuck in the ice of Antarctica. The reason why the ice in Antarctica is thicker than it has been in many decades.

Thanks for the tips on how to do my laundry and stuff! I feel like I am saving the planet just by having read it!

Here's one more planet-saving idea: Use manual scissors to cut out the great pictures of real Antarctica. Then use the rest of the bad-science propaganda in your fireplace, and save on that nasty modern resource-wasting form of heat!

And someone please rush to Antarctica to save that penguin before that last ice fragment melts and leaves him as prey for nasty humans who would carry him/her off to a zoo somewhere!
