By: Sir Wally Herbert (Illustrator), Kari Herbert (Author)
128 pages, colour illustrations
This unique book captures the spirit of the polar world, as never seen before – through the eyes of a man who was the bridge between the heroic age of exploration and modern adventure; a visionary who learned the art of survival from the Inuit.
This superb collection of Sir Wally's paintings, together with personal anecdotes of his experiences and his connection with the polar pioneers of the past, make The Polar World a vital contribution to polar literature.
...a vastly important book of paintings, drawings and stories about these extraordinary regions of the world
- Sir Ranulph Fiennes

"Profoundly evocative ... a uniquely insightful book"
