Mapping the World
Even though explorers have been trekking to the far southern end of the globe for more than 200 years, there's still a lot to discover on the icy continent of Antarctica. In fact, research stations across the continent teach us new things every year. Readers will learn about a great mountain range buried under ice, massive glaciers, and the wildlife that survives the cold. Majestic photographs and detailed maps will engage readers as geographical, historical, and weather information introduce them to the fifth-largest continent on Earth. Fact boxes enhance the main content to intrigue future explorers and scientists alike.
