Summary
"This is a book about the breathtaking beauty of Antarctica. In the pristine blue waters, at the bottom of the earth, this land of ice is stunning in its grandeur. This book is also about the courage of explorers who have risked their lives. And, in the impenetrable ice, there lies another world--an enchanting land of creatures, unusual and beautiful, who have made this place their home." -- Provided by publisher
