 A compact, thorough identification guide to the birds and marine mammals of the Antarctic Peninsula, Drake Passage and Beagle Channel. By James Lowen.

 A compelling scholarly look at this vast land's history: two centuries of exploration, scientific investigation and contentious geopolitics. By David Day.

 When Admiral Byrd set out on his second Antarctic expedition in 1934, he was already an international hero for having piloted the first flights over the North and South Poles. His plan for this latest adventure was to spend six months alone near the bottom of the world, gathering weather data and indulging his desire “to taste peace and quiet long enough to know how good they really are.” But early on things went terribly wrong. By Richard E Byrd.

 The dramatic story of what Sir Edmund Hillary called "the most outstanding solo journey ever recorded in Antarctic history." For weeks in Antarctica, Douglas Mawson faced some of the most daunting conditions ever known to man: blistering wind, snow, and cold; loss of his companion, his dogs and supplies, the skin on his hands and the soles of his feet; thirst, starvation, disease, snowblindness — and he survived.  By Lennard Bickel.

 At the beginning of the twentieth century, the South Pole was the most coveted prize in the fiercely nationalistic modern age of exploration. This brilliant dual biography re-examines every detail of the great race to the South Pole between Britain's Robert Scott (aboard the Terra Nova, built in Dundee, Scotland) and Norway's Roald Amundsen (aboard the Fram, preserved in Oslo, Norway). By Roland Huntford.

 A scientific perspective on what it's like to be in Antarctica — the most alien, inhospitable place on the planet — and why it fascinates so many different kinds of people. By Gabrielle Walker.

 The definitive account of Sir Ernest Shackleton's 1914-15 failed attempt at an overland crossing of the Antarctic. By Alfred Lansing.

 Download (for free) the famous memoir of the ill-fated 1910–1913 British Antarctic Expedition led by Robert Falcon Scott, written and published in 1922 by a survivor of the expedition. By Apsley Cherry-Garrard.

A dramatic, historical-fiction account of Robert Falcon Scott’s famed and fatal expedition to Antarctica. By Beryl Bainbridge.
