Voyage To The End Of The World: With Tales From The Great Ice Barrier
University Press of Colorado, 2002 - 190 ページ
Author, journalist, and explorer David Burke was smitten with Antarctica on his first visit in 1958. Forty-three years later he made his sixth trip south aboard a 12,000 ton Russian icebreaker, Kapitan Khlebnikov. The captain and crew's objective was to sail farther south than any previous voyage. In Voyage to the End of the World, Burke documents his journey from Hobart, Australia, across the Southern Ocean and ultimately to the farthest edge of the Great Ice Barrier. En route, the passengers encountered B15, the world's largest recorded iceberg. Interspersed with reports and documents from the early explorers such as Amundsen, Scott, Shackleton, and Byrd, Burke's account illustrates just how much the Antarctic has changed in the past century. Filled with contemporary and historical photographs, Voyage to the End of the World is a fascinating read that will interest polar enthusiasts as well as armchair travelers intrigued with the historic exploits of the brave and foolhardy.
