These travellers’ tales have one thing in common: they are true. Antarctica is the driest, the windiest, the highest continent on earth. And the least known. This anthology offers a diverse collection of gripping autobiographical first impressions of travellers of all kinds to Antarctica. From the very famous, to the many long forgotten expeditioners and voyagers, whose stories are some of the most extraordinary tales of courage and daring ever published.
