Book Description Houghton Mifflin. 1 Cloth(s), 2013. hard. Book Condition: New. Suggesting that the most mysterious thing about Antarctica is that so many people are willing to go there, Gabrielle Walker made several trips herself, staying in the outposts of six different nations. Here the BBC programmer introduces the resilient scientists who are investigating geology, climate change, and how to make penguins regurgitate, but also the cooks and laborers who have come seeking the ultimate adventure. In addition to providing a detailed account of what it is actually like to be in Antarctica—and perhaps it goes without saying that nothing is easy there—Walker also touches upon the history and pop culture associated with the seventh continent. The book also includes maps, a glossary, and a chronology."Hugely informative. Walker uses direct speech to render the material digestible, allowing her protagonists to speak for themselves. She has a gift for lay analogy, as a popular science writer must."—Spectator 388. Bookseller Inventory # 64037

Book Description HOUGHTON MIFFLIN, United States, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 231 x 155 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Antarctica is the most alien place on the planet, the only part of the earth where humans could never survive unaided. Out of our fascination with it have come many books, most of which focus on only one aspect of its unique strangeness. None has managed to capture the whole story until now. Drawing on her broad travels across the continent, in Antarctica Gabrielle Walker weaves all the significant threads of life on the vast ice sheet into an intricate tapestry, illuminating what it really feels like to be there and why it draws so many different kinds of people. With her we witness cutting-edge science experiments, visit the South Pole, lodge with American, Italian, and French researchers, drive snowdozers, drill ice cores, and listen for the message Antarctica is sending us about our future in an age of global warming. This is a thrilling trip to the farthest reaches of earth by one of the best science writers working today. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780151015207
