About this book

This booklet is an introduction to the landscapes of polar and other glacial regions. It is an essential guide whether you are visiting in person or travelling from the comfort of your armchair. As well as ice and snow, it also includes many periglacial features, i.e. those occurring in the ice-free areas.

"There is a great value to polar travellers in carrying this booklet with them, and it makes for a good little gift to a student or friend travelling to the Arctic and Antarctic regions."
