Books I've read about Antarctica

I've listed here some of the very few books that seem to be available locally about Antarctica. Grandma and I were both very surprised by the scarcity of books written about Antarctica. We were also surprised to find that most of the books that do exist are about the explorers, and not about the place itself.


Campbell, David G. 1992. The Crystal Desert: Summers in Antarctica. New York: Houghton Mifflin Company.

Steger, Will, and Jon Bowermaster. 1991. Crossing Antarctica. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, Inc.

Orient Lines also sent us a list of books for recommended reading.
