Biographie de l'auteur

Alexis Averbuck lived at McMurdo Station through a summer and winter, experiencing both townie lite and incredible boondoggles. She observed diving emperor penguins and Weddell seals from beneath the ice. She reveled in multiweek sunsets and sunrises reflecting off mountains and sea ice. Midwinter she camped in an ice trench watching the aurora australis. Alexis explored ice caves, flew over Mt Erebus, and, ultimately, made it to the geographic South Pole. And she made friends. Antarctica changed her life irrevocably. A travel writer for 20 years, Alexis has crossed the Pacific by sailboat, written books on her journeys through Asia and the Americas, and now lives on the island of Hydra. She also specializes in Greece and France for Lonely Planet. Antarctica inspired her to paint because some things are simply beyond words. Carolyn McCarthy wrote the Ushuaia section of this book. As well as writing about her favorite destination of Patagonia, Carolyn has contributed to over a dozen Lonely Planet titles. She has also written for National Geographic, Outside and Lonely Planet Magazine.

2012's Ruined Edition of a Great 2008 Book 4 octobre 2014
Par Robert B. Madison - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This 2012 edition of Lonely Planet Antarctica is a big disappointment after reading the previous (2008) edition. Let me explain why.

There are two sorts of people who would ever buy this book. The first group is people who are actually travelling to the Antarctic; those people have plenty of money and would not care about paying a dollar or two more for a bigger book than this one. The second group are people who are just fascinated with the Antarctic.

The 2008 edition was far more comprehensive and thus, more interesting to the second group and more useful to the first group. When Lonely Planet redid the book for the 2012 edition, unfortunately, they hacked out about 150 pages of interesting and informative material. The worst hacking concerned the so-called Peri-Antarctic Islands, a whole lot of isolated but fascinating places such as Kerguelen Island, which will serve as my one example (I could cite many others). In the 2006 edition, Kerguelen -- a remote French possession second only to the Falklands in land mass -- earned five pages of fascinating text, a full-page map, and a detailed history that was a delight to read. In the 2012 edition, however, Kerguelen was hacked down to one reference in one sentence of text noting that resupply vessels take tourists there.

So, if you want an outdated but comprehensive guide to the islands of the Antarctic region, you will have to buy the 2008 edition! If you want an up-to-date but incomplete version, the disappointing 2012 edition is available. I should add that when Lonely Planet chopped out 150 pages of excellent reading material for the 2012 edition, they actually RAISED the price from $27.99 to $28.99. Now that I've vented, I will return the library copy of the 2006 edition and search Amazon for a used 2008 edition that I can add to my collection (having wasted my money on the 2012 version).

Saving for my trip 1 janvier 2013
Par Ryan P. Ver Berkmoes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is a great book even if you don't yet have your Antarctica travel date. It is both engaging and deeply informative on the closest place we can get to another planet. There is a beautiful full-color wildlife section, with great shots of penguins and other wildlife, both iconic and unknown. The author's time spent on the continent can be found in the expert advice and knowledge found in every chapter. This book will be an excellent companion when the time comes for my trip so that I can get full value from my money and time spent.

Very fine introduction to Antarctica for the casual tourist 27 octobre 2013
Par Elizabeth Bullitt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book provides a very nice introduction to Antarctica (with a wonderful cover photo)! Of importance, the book includes a discussion of Ushuaia Argentina, from which most Antarctic cruises depart, as well as multiple islands that are not part of the Antarctic continent but that one might be likely to visit during a trip to the Antarctic peninsula. The volume is thus more comprehensive than one might expect--and covers important regions likely to be visited by the casual tourist.

The volume provides historical and geographical summaries, a discussion of the animal life, and (to this reader's delight) the odd and interesting story, such as that of the Russian physician who was required to remove his own appendix during an Antarctic winter.

The book does address, at least briefly, some of the conservation issues critical to Antarctica.

This book will likely not appeal to the most adventurous travelers who want to make overland treks via ski and dogsled to the geographical pole--but such individuals are unlikely to be looking for the kind of summary provided by Lonely Planet in any case. I can wholeheartedly recommend this volume, however, to the tourist who wants to make an introductory visit to this most remote continent.

I like this book for its detailed, yet concise inforfation and for its organization and ease of use. 1 avril 2014
Par Erika H. Simons - Publié sur Amazon.com

When I went to Antarctica in 2011 I did not have this travel guide with me. I frequently used my roommate's copy and found it very helpful when trying to recollect detailed information about places we had just seen, for my travel journal or to gather info about the next port of call. This updated copy has still more information and is very well organized. I'm very glad to have it as a reference and would recommend it to anybody traveling to Antarctica.
Great Travelogue? Maybe not. 20 juin 2013

If you're interested in Antarctica, and have NO plans to visit there, this might be the perfect book for you. The book covers the entire continent, even though few travelers can ever go to most of it. The areas where most tourists do go (the islands and the peninsula) are cursorily described but not in the depth you might like before one visits there.
