The result of 20 years of research, Rosove tells the stories of 25 Antarctic voyages, from Captain James Cook's expedition in 1772 to Shackleton's final expedition in 1922. Included are Cook, Bellingshausen, Biscoe, d’Urville, Wilkes, Ross, Bull, de Gerlache, Borchgrevink, Scott, Drygalski, Nordenskjold, Bruce, Charcot, Shackleton, Amundsen, Filchner, Mawson, Cope, and more. Rosove skillfully weaves together the explorers' own insightful and inspiring comments with a narrative that puts readers in the midst of events. We have purchased the last new copies available directly from Michael.
