Life on the Ice
This fully illustrated book introduces a few aspects of the Earth's Polar regions and answers such questions as: how does it feel to be near the North Pole when it's so cold that a cup of hot water, thrown in the air, explodes into ice particles? What's it like to be somewhere even colder - the South Pole, where a refrigerator containing fruits and vegetables has to be heated? Topics presented include the difficulties of flying to and landing at the poles, scientific research done at each pole, and the challenge of human survival in the extreme cold.
