Douglas R.G. Sellick./Penguin Books Pty. Ltd


The last wild continent


These traveller's tales have one thing in common: they are all true.


Antarctica is the driest continent, the windiest, the highest continent on earth. And the least known. This anthology offers a diverse collection of gripping impressions of travellers of all kinds to Antarctica. From the very famous, to the many long forgotten expeditioners and voyagers, whose stories are some of the most extraordinary tales of courage and daring ever published.


First impressions by James Cook, James Weddell, James Eights, Charles Wilkes, Sir James Clark Ross, William J J Spry, Henrik Johan Bull, Frederick Albert Cook, Robert Falcon Scott, Ernest Henry Shackleton, Roald Engebreth Gravning Amundsen, Edward R G R Evans, Herbert G Ponting, Frank Debenham, Douglas Mawson, Ernest Edward Mills Joyce, Sir Hubert Wilkins.
