About this book

Brilliantly attuned to the transience of nature and painfully aware of the precariousness of a polar environment facing global warming, Matthiessen provides an exquisite account of his voyage through the islands surrounding Antarctica. He describes their wildlife as well as the voyages of pioneers and adventurers who preceded him.
