Airey - On Antarctica
On Antarctica is filled with anecdotes of humour,
tragedy, fire, war, wildlife, tourism, mountaineering, celebration,
base-life, yachting, travel, science, sex and even spies!
The book is an extraordinary but true account of life on
remote Antarctic bases where people live with few companions;
no neighbours, no shops, no help, no hospitals and no way
out. Read how Antarctica was affected by the Falkland Island
war with new, original material never before released. Read
about the Petermann tragedy and the desperation of isolation
in Antarctica. Read what they do in Antarctica to survive
those winter nights and celebrate those special occasions.
Read about life on Antarctica, mesmerising, a book outstandingly
written with scores of illustrations and photographs.
