Antarctica: the Last Frontier
Young Jon Michaels has traveled all over the world, but he's never been anywhere as dangerous - or as strangely beautiful - as Antarctica. Isolated at the bottom of the planet, it is the coldest, windiest place on Earth. The journey begins aboard the S.S. Windhover, as they battle 100-foot waves in the Drake Passage. Like every true explores, Jon records is adventure in his journal. "It's stranger than anything I ever imagined," he writes. On his arrival, he swims in a volcano, witnesses an attack by a killer whale, flies through a deadly whiteout, and learns why Antarctica is, perhaps, the most important continent on Earth. The book is filled with environmental facts, links to important topics, and stunning art.
