Rate this:

Terra Incognita is a meditation on the landscape, myths and history of one of the remotest parts of the globe, as well as an encounter with the international temporary residents of the region - living in close confinement despite the surrounding acres of white space - and the mechanics of day-to-day life in extraordinary conditions. Through Sara Wheeler, the Antarctic is revealed, in all its seductive mystery.

I would have liked to know a little more about what the scientists were doing, but I now know a lot more about the geography of Antarctica and this history of exploration there.

Highly recommended. Her deep reflections prompted by the extreme surroundings, the great adventures she has, and her entertaining historical insights make this a book I could not put down.
