Terra Incognita: Travels in Antarctica (Roman) - Paperback

ISBN: 0099731819

[SR: 772351], Taschenbuch, [EAN: 9780099731818], Vintage, Vintage, Book, [PU: Vintage], Vintage, When explorers such as Ernest Shackleton, Roald Amundsen, and Robert Falcon Scott all set off to Antarctica in the early years of the 20th century, the polar regions were among the last truly unexplored areas of the world--and arguably the least hospitable. Scott lost his life, pinned down in a howling blizzard only 11 miles from his supply depot; Shackleton lost his ship, crushed in the ice. Even those who survived the icy wastes did so only with enormous effort. And yet, there is something about Antarctica that beckons people; eighty years after Shackleton's voyage, Sara Wheeler answered the call, leaving her comfortable home for "the Great White." Terra Incognita is the result of her sojourn in that legendary land. In addition to chronicling her own encounters with the people and the place, Wheeler brings the past alive as well, through vivid stories about the heroes of polar exploration: Shackleton, Scott, Amundsen, and others who practically become secondary characters in Wheeler's account. But it is her interactions with the living people who make up the community--scientists, drifters, and dreamers who have settled this forbidding landscape--that make Terra Incognita a rare and worthy book., 54127011, Lernen & Nachschlagen, 54128011, Almanache & Jahrbücher, 54131011, Atlanten & Karten, 54216011, Bildung, 54455011, Bücher & Verlag, 54258011, Enzyklopädien, 54282011, Etikette, 54287011, Fremdsprachen, 54400011, Genealogie, 54138011, Geschäftskenntnisse, 54396011, Infotainment, 54520011, Kataloge & Verzeichnisse, 54524011, Lernhilfen, 54679011, Ratgeber in Spanisch, 54499011, Schreiben, 54144011, Verbraucherführer, 54476011, Wörter & Sprache, 54145011, Wörterbücher & Thesauri, 54472011, Zitate, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 58933011, Essays & Reiseberichte, 58931011, Ratgeber & Tipps, 58645011, Reise & Abenteuer, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher

Terra Incognita - new book

ISBN: 9780099731818

ID: 607719

After writing two highly praised travel books, Sara Wheeler was accepted by the American government to be the first foreigner on their National Science Foundation's Antarctic Artists' and Writers Program. She spent seven months on the continent, travelling from the fabled Ross Ice Shelf to the Pole itself, the remoter reaches of the West Antarctic ice sheet, and the balmy Antarctic Peninsula. 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. Fiction Fiction eBook, Random House
