Walter Dean Myers presents a thrilling record of Antarctica and the expedition parties that have uncovered the frozen continent throughout history. Walter Dean Myers brings the dramatic race to the South Pole to life in Antarctica, tracking the explorers of the South Pole - including James Cook, Ernest Shackleton, and Richard Evelyn Bird - and the dangers they encountered there, as well as their contributions to science. The heroism and adventure - and sometimes the ultimate failure - of the expeditions are depicted in Myers's powerful prose, and through the photos, maps, and illustrations that complement the text.

Antarctica, the last unexplored area on earth. Cold. Icy. Windy. Inhospitable. And a fascinating target for explorers such as James Cook, the first to cross the Antarctic Circle (1773); Roald Amundson, the first to reach the South Pole (1911); and Ernest Shackleton, the first to cross the continent.
