About the Book
This educational travel guide tours the remote and seldom visited archipelago of the South Orkneys within the Antarctic convergence in the Southern Ocean.
The tour features the rugged snow capped mountains with their pristine blue-white glaciers, massive tabular icebergs drifting in the ocean from the ice sheets, Adélie and chinstrap penguins, light-mantled sooty albatrosses, Cape Petrels, and a visit to the longest manned base in Antarctica, the Argentinean Base Orcadas on Laurie Island and Omond House.
