AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Antarctica is a desert, vast and frozen. Yet there is life in Antarctica. Abundant, wonderful life. The land does not feed the millions of animals that manage to survive in this harsh and beautiful place. The ocean fuels Antarctica's life.

Written and researched in Antarctica with stunning sketches and watercolours completed on site, Antarctic Journal creates a vibrant sense of the crowded Antarctic summer. Experience Antarctic expeditioners Meredith Hooper and Lucia deLeiris travelled for three and a half months, selected by the US Antarctic Artists & Writers Program. 

This unique journal includes information on the Antarctic eco-system, climate change, the food web, maps and an index. (Source: Publication Summary)
