Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6--A readable and informative look at the history, environment, and wildlife of this icy region. Threats to the ecology of the driest, highest, coldest, windiest, and most southern continent are outlined along with the cooperative efforts of many nations to protect and preserve the area from exploitation and abuse of its rich resources. High-quali ty, captioned full-color photographs en hance the well-written text, lending ad ditional information as well as visual appeal. This volume is more attractive and up-to-date in terms of global envi ronmental issues than Soule's Antarcti ca (Watts, 1985; o.p.). For a firsthand look at an Antarctic base, see Hack well's Desert of Ice (Scribners, 1991). In Cowcher's Antarctica (Soundprints, 1990), penguins see the arrival of hu man expeditioners as potential threats to their habitat.--Eunice Weech, M. L. King Elementary School, Urbana, IL
