Walter Dean Myers presents a thrilling record of Antarctica and the expedition parties that have uncovered the frozen continent throughout history.

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.
