Over the centuries, many intrepid souls have journeyed to the forbidding south polar regions. In this single volume, Michael H. Rosove tells their stories, voyage by voyage, in language that's accessible to the general reader yet holds the attention of serious polar buffs and scholars.

"An exciting compendium of true tales...Each journey's preparations are described meticulously. Rosove is precise about dates and geography. A lucid, useful reference book on the Antarctic." (The Palm Beach Post)

"An excellent detailed account of the early explorers of the Antarctic continent...Rosove's love for the Antarctic is apparent in his treatment of these exploring pioneers, whose hardships can hardly be imagined today." (John Splettstoesser, geologist and Antarctica expert)

"[Rosove] gives the reader a feeling for the explorers' motivations and the hardships they had to face by using their own words-the words of pioneers who were truly heroes. Highly recommended." (Library Journal)
