            'For some scientific questions, Antarctica is the best - and sometimes the only - place to look for answers. Visiting this frozen landscape is to gain a fresh perspective on our world, almost like going to another planet and looking back with renewed wonder on Earth.' In Science ...on Ice, award-winning science broadcaster and writer Veronika Meduna follows deep-south scientists who huddle in tents and dive under ice to study ancient mud, fat fish, migrating penguins and fossilised forests. Meduna presents us with a fascinating frozen land - Antarctica's ice cap holds three quarters of the planet's fresh water, its layers of ice and sediment record past climate conditions going back millions of years, and the oceans around it drive the global food chain and a giant conveyor belt of currents that transports heat around the globe. The creatures that call Antarctica home have evolved to survive in conditions hostile to life, and the continent's permanently ice-covered lakes may even hold the secret to how life began on Earth - and what it might look like elsewhere. And though it is the only continent without permanent human habitation, Antartica may yet hold the key to our survival. In this lavishly illustrated book Meduna introduces us to an exhilarating landscape, to fascinating discoveries and to the people making them - those scientists tackling fundamental questions about life and the world around us from the frozen continent.

            Here, in one accessible volume, is Ray Parkin's highly acclaimed and multi-award winning study of Captain James Cook's Endeavour. This incomparable book is a unique account of a great journey-Endeavour's voyage up the east coast of Australia in 1770-and a remarkable re-creation o...f the experience of being on board ship. Parkin draws on meticulous research to reveal what the Endeavour looked like, how it sailed, how it smelled, what daily life would have been like for those on board. How many strands of yarn were in the ship's cable? (954.) Did the ship have a lightning conductor? (Yes.) What was the diameter of her main mast? (21 inches.) These details are illustrated by plans and figures depicting the ship's architecture and construction, its deck plan, rigging, sails, armament, boats, cables, anchors and accommodation, all beautifully drawn by Parkin. A composite log of Endeavour's voyage-extracts from journals kept by those on board-is supplemented by an interpretive commentary and explanatory charts. H.M. Bark Endeavour is an absorbing book- discursive, erudite, at times poetic, full of wisdom, insight and information.

            Shackleton's Whisky: A Spirit of Discovery: Ernest Shackleton's 1907 Antarctic Expedition, and the Rare Malt Whisky He Left Behind (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            The incredible tale of Antarctica, malt whisky and an epic journey. Sir Ernest Shackleton's world fame is founded on the Endurance expedition of 1914-17, an attempt to cross the Antarctic continent that was foiled by the crushing of his ship in pack ice. The heroics that followed... ensured that Shackleton and his men would forever have a place in the annals of polar history and world exploration. But Shackleton had first come south seven years prior, leading the 1907 British Antarctic Expedition of 14 hand-picked men and targeting the South Pole from the opposite side of Antarctica. Rarely did Shackleton consume strong drink, and on his expeditions he tolerated only a 'mild spree' at times of celebration. But in 1907 25 cases u 300 bottles u of Rare Old Highland Malt Whisky whisky, three cases of which would ultimately lie forgotten beneath his hut at Cape Royds in the McMurdo Sound region for over 100 years, were loaded aboard his ship the Nimrod. The discovery of the whisky in 2007, and its subsequent reblending by the Mackinlay distillery, inspired Neville Peat to rexamine and explore Shackleton's first Antarctic expedition, the 'heroic' era of Antarctic exploration, and the craft and lore behind Scotland's finest dram.

            A memoir of heartbreak, thousand-mile races, the endless Alaskan wilderness and many, many dogs from one of only a handful of women to have completed both the Yukon Quest and the Iditarod.In 2009, after a crippling divorce that left her heartbroken and directionless, Kristin deci...ded to accept an offer to live at a friend's cabin outside of Denali National Park in Alaska for a few months. In exchange for housing, she would take care of her friend's eight sled dogs. That winter, she learned that she was tougher than she ever knew. She learned how to survive in one of the most remote places on earth and she learned she was strong enough to be alone. She fell in love twice: first with running sled dogs, and then with Andy, a gentle man who had himself moved to Alaska to heal a broken heart. Kristin and Andy married and started a sled dog kennel. While this work was enormously satisfying, Kristin became determined to complete the Iditarod -- the 1,000-mile dogsled race from Anchorage, in south central Alaska, to Nome on the western Bering Sea coast.THIS MUCH COUNTRY is the story of renewal and transformation. It's about journeying across a wild and unpredictable landscape and finding inner peace, courage and a true home. It's about pushing boundaries and overcoming paralyzing fears.

            Tim & Tigon (EPUB ebook)

            By Cope, Tim

            Adventurer Tim Cope had a childhood dream: to travel the 10,000 kilometres from Mongolia to Hungary on horseback - a journey undertaken centuries ago by the legendary leader of the Mongols, Genghis Khan. On this journey, Tim met a dog called Tigon. For more than three years, Tim ...and Tigon endured searing heat and bitter cold; dark lonely nights when wolves circled their camp; hunger; despair; joy; and the wild beauty of the landscape that changed constantly around them. They met the people of the steppe, who welcomed Tim and Tigon into their homes, and shared their traditions and histories. This is the story of a unique journey - a journey filled with the spirit of the pioneering explorers of old. It is the story of an extraordinary friendship. Praise for On the Trail of Genghis Khan 'An inspiration to me and I believe he will be an inspiration for many.' Elizabeth Gilbert 'An epic tale of an epic journey, told with beauty and simplicity.' Tim Macartney-Snape, mountaineer, first Australian to summit Mount Everest
