For thirty years, diehard David Poyer fans searched used bookstores for the few tattered surviving copies of WHITE CONTINENT. This sprawling first novel reads like a remix of ATLAS SHRUGGED and THE DOGS OF WAR. It follows a team of adventurers, mercenaries, outcasts, and entrepreneurs in a daring takeover of the last unclaimed land on earth - the terrifyingly hostile continent of Antarctica.

Using advanced technology to survive, they struggle to build a Utopian society, both communal and fiercely individualistic, unlike any other on earth. Then, united under their red, green, and white flag, they must fight to hold their new homeland, against those who want to wrest it from them.

This novel's epic sweep, as well as its evocation of the horrific grandeur of the most remote setting on earth, marked the appearance of a blazing new talent. Poyer would go on to craft scores of exciting novels of action, adventure, and history . . . always chronicling the struggles of heroic men and women to achieve, endure, and prevail.
