Terra Incognita : Travels in Antarctica, Paperback / softback Book

Terra Incognita : Travels in Antarctica Paperback / softback


A modern classic on exploring and understanding the Antarctic, the most uncharted place on our planet. Terra Incognita is a meditation on the landscape, myths and history of one of the remotest parts of the globe, as well as an encounter with the international temporary residents of the region - living in close confinement despite the surrounding acres of white space - and the mechanics of day-to-day life in extraordinary conditions.

Through Sara Wheeler, the Antarctic is revealed, in all its seductive mystery. 'Antarctica could hope for no better chronicler: spirited, humorous and highly intelligent, she is also a writer of rare talent' Observer
