He explores what drew Cook, Bellingshausen, Shackleton, Scott and other adventurers and naturalists to this vast terrain. With sensitive descriptions and startling photography, he travels into the heart of Antarctica s wilderness and explores the intimate relationship between Cape Town and the frozen south.
