Mountaineering in Antarctica is a comprehensive overview of climbing history and expeditions by a recognized expert on the territory.

This book is a tribute to the mountains themselves and to the experiences of those who have traveled among them -- their triumphs, travails, and tragedies. For the first time, the peaks and ranges of the planet's wildest continent are revealed in one place for all to see.
