Naturalist Naveen and three additional photographers made, between them, more than 60 trips to the Antarctic. This book is a record of their images and reflections on the most hostile, remote, and beautiful place on earth. The photographs are of the quality of most Smithsonian works, including close-ups of animals and colorful sunsets highlighting iceflows and glaciers. The text, in a well-written travelog style, offers reliable natural history information. A good purchase for general collections and secondary school libraries.-- Mary J.
