A nicely produced overview of Antarctic exploration from James Cook up to the present day, though with the most emphasis given (understandably) to the efforts of Shackleton, Amundsen and Scott. It's well-illustrated with contemporary photographs: my main quibble was that although historical charts are included, there is no modern map of Antarctica showing the various routes taken. Otherwise this is an attractive introduction to the subject.

A multi-faceted view of the approach to one of the last frontiers on Earth. Each point of view opens up another avenue for research. This volume also provides insight from contemporary researchers, explorers and adventurers, some of whom try to re-do what others have done, or attempted to do in the past.
