Terra Incognita: Travels in Antarctica
Vintage, 1997 - Всего страниц: 320
A modern classic on exploring and understanding the Antarctic, the most uncharted place on our planet.
Terra Incognita is a meditation on the landscape, myths and history of one of the remotest parts of the globe, as well as an encounter with the international temporary residents of the region - living in close confinement despite the surrounding acres of white space - and the mechanics of day-to-day life in extraordinary conditions. Through Sara Wheeler, the Antarctic is revealed, in all its seductive mystery.
