About this book

This the latest of Bernard Stonehouses' Antarctica travelogues. It is based on his previous work The Last Continent: Discovering Antarctica but has been revised since his last work was published over 5 years ago.
It is written for the thousands of travellers who visit Antarctica through the southern gateway ports of South America - through Buenos Aires, Montevideo and Valparaiso on the mainland, and Punta Arenas and Ushuaia on Tierra del Fuego. This book takes us south to the Antarctic Peninsula, the South Orkney, South Shetland and South Sandwich Islands and South Georgia, via the Chilean Fjords, southern Patagonia, the Straits of Magellan, Cape Horn, the Falkland Islands, and the gateway ports themselves. These are journeys that Stonehouse and his team have made many times but still enjoy.
"Bernard Stonehouse is the sort of man you pray for as expedition leader. Sadly we can no longer sign on to sail with Shackleton, but here in Stonehouse we are in company with the twenty-first century version." Tony Soper, Ornithologist, expedition leader and television presenter
