Vast, remote, otherworldly - its terrain more moonscape than landscape - Antarctica is the last uncharted territory, the end of the world. Scott an d Shackleton were unable to conquer it. Most of us will never set foot on it. Yet in Michael ParfitsMoreVast, remote, otherworldly - its terrain more moonscape than landscape - Antarctica is the last uncharted territory, the end of the world.

Scott an d Shackleton were unable to conquer it. Most of us will never set foot on it. Yet in Michael Parfits evocative account we take a journey that is utterly memorable.One of the few writers ever to have spent a full season in Antarctica, Michael Parfit travelled by plane, icebreaker and research vessel to icy places both known and unknown. South Light is a sharply observed narrative enlivened by fascinating animals and particular breeds of men and women - scienrtists and military personnel - whose brave and cheerful communities warm this cold climate.Parfit has a novelists eye for details of character and place.

We are on the abandoned bridge of a ship as it slips down a moonlit avenue of rock and ice- in the cockpit of a transport plane during a heartstopping blind landing- sharing the thrill of being the first humans ever to land on an uncharted island.Heaped with the most generous praise upon its American publication, South Light is an outstanding work of travel writing.
