The vast terrain covering the Earth's southernmost continent-extending from the islands off the tip of Argentina to the underbelly of the Australian continent-is home to some of the planet's most awe-inspiring landscapes. In this book, two of the foremost experts on the region present the intriguing and often surprising realities behind Antarctica's panoramas. Photographer Patrick de Wilde first ventured into the arctic circle some 25 years ago; celebrated explorer Yves Paccalet's fierce passion for the Antarctic led him to the South Pole onboard the Calypso as part of marine biologist Jacques Cousteau's team. While there, Paccalet came face-to-face with the Earth's roughest oceans and iciest landscapes; nevertheless, his experiences bear witness to the triumph of life in these seemingly hostile climates.Antarcticaoffers a breathtaking voyage through the history of the Antarctic and an exclusive look into the future of this largely untouched natural wonderland.
