About the Author
Praise For Terra Incognita: Travels in Antarctica (Modern Library)…
"A triumph . . . I cannot believe that anything better will ever be written about Antarctica." --Daily Telegraph
"Compelling . . . leaves the reader with a visceral understanding of the mysterious, even sublime power the poles have exerted
on the human imagination, and the desolate beauty that resides there amid the glaciers and icebergs and penguins."
--Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
"I have read many accounts of polar exploration, but never one which so touchingly describes its emotional topography. . . . What she has done could not be done better." --Richard Eyre, The Independent
"The first funny book about Antarctica." --Los Angeles Times
