Reviews

We are all anxious Antarctic watchers now, and Walker's book is the essential primer
*Guardian*

The early Antarctic expeditions are thoroughly covered in this enthralling book. But, then again, so is every other aspect of a place that continues to haunt the human imagination ... Perhaps best of all, Walker gives us a fantastically vivid sense of what it's like to be in Antarctica
*Readers Digest*

This is a fascinating insight into one of the most inhospitable places on Earth and its implications for the world's future
*Irish Examiner*

Brimful of science, heroism, tragedy and laugh-out-loud humour, Antarctica is an exciting and informative read ... Walker interweaves personal accounts and in-depth research to tell an intimate captivating story
*BBC Focus*
