About this book

This second edition of the 1991 award-winning (Library Journal Best Reference) book is a phenomenally complete A-Z of Antarctica. The approximately 30,000 entries include geographical features, significant historical events, explorers, expeditions, ships, scientists, scientific stations, tour operators, scientific terms, birds, animals, insects, flora, and much more. It is heavily cross-referenced for best access. Information for the numerous geographical features in this book came primarily from national gazetteers, current and historic.
