Summary
A dramatic chronicle of Antarctica's penguins that bears witness to climate changes that foreshadow our own future. Scientist Bill Fraser has studied the Adélie penguins of the western Antarctic Peninsula for three decades. In that time, this breathtaking region has warmed faster than any place on earth, with profound consequences for the Adélies, the classic tuxedoed penguin that is dependent on sea ice to survive. During the Antarctic spring and summer of 2005-2006, author Fen Montaigne spent five months working on Fraser's field team, and he returned with a moving tale that chronicles the beauty of the wildest place on earth, the lives of the beloved Adélies, the saga of the discovery of the Antarctic Peninsula, and the story--told through Fraser's work--of how rising temperatures are swiftly changing this part of the world.--From publisher description
