Reading this book made me feel as if I had relived my son's trips with him. I read and saw the places he talked about. The stories of GW's visits to the camps of other countries were extremely informative and colorful. The part I think I liked most was how she described the human factor...how intelligent and dedicated (and quirky) the personnel was. The history of the continent and the descriptions of the experiments, plus the value of the information gained by the scientist and engineers convince me that this research is most valuable and must continue.
If you want to just read about Antarctica, I'm sure you will enjoy this book. If you want to learn about the science and research there, you will find it in this book.
I actually read this book from our public library. Whenever my son called I would tell him the latest I had learned. I said it was a must have for his library. So I purchased this copy from Amazon for him. The American publication lacks the photo inserts of the British publication that I purchased used ("for character.")The wear was negligible...just a small dent on the bottom of the back cover. Buy the British version if you want the photos.
By reading this story of Antarctica you will experience a world apart. This is definitely a book to share.
I love this book!
A delightful and thrilling adventure report.
