Reviews

"Forbidding yet fascinating, like the continent it describes . . . echoes Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air."--People

"[Antarctica] should be included in any short-list of books about the frozen continent.... Compelling characters...a rich and dense story...Robinson has succeeded not only in drawing human characters but also in bringing Antarctica to life. Whatever happens in the outer world, Antarctica--both the book and the continent--will become part of the reader's interior landscape."--The Washington Post Book World

"The epic of Antarctica. This is the James A. Michener novel of the South Pole. If the meaty one-word title didn't give it away, the writing would. The whole human history of the continent is here."--Interzone

"Antarctica will take your breath away."--Associated Press

"A gripping tale of adventure on the ice."--Publishers Weekly

"Passionate, informed...vastly entertaining."--Kirkus Reviews

"Robinson writes about geography and geology with the intensity and unhurried attention to detail of a John McPhee."--The New York Times Book Review
