Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Storied Ice: Exploration, Discovery and Adventure in Antarctica's Peninsula Region recounts mankind's dramatic history from Magellan through the first years of the twenty-first century in the part of the Antarctic regions below South America and the Atlantic Ocean. This part of the world, by far the most visited portion of the south polar regions, is not only a place of staggering scenic beauty and amazing wildlife, but also a locale with a long and fascinating human history.

Book News Annotation:

This work for general readers tells the story of various well-known and less-known explorers, whalers, expeditions, aviators, and scientists of Antarctica's Peninsula Region. Narratives include many quotes from the explorers' own accounts. The first chapter gives an overview of efforts at exploration before 1819; later chapters cover the discovery of Antarctica 1819-1821, through the Antarctic Treaty era after 1959. The book includes 100 b&w historical photos and illustrations and 30 maps, plus a timeline, a table of Antarctic firsts, and a glossary. Boothe has traveled widely in Antarctica.
