Animals Robert Scott Saw: An Adventure in Antarctica
Sandra Markle (au)
On Nov. 29, 1901, explorer Robert Scott made his first trip to the frozen continent of Antarctica. With average winter temp. ranging from 14 to -22 degrees Fahrenheit -- not to mention the relentless icy wind -- Antarctica was the only continent on Earth on which no people had ever lived. Scott and his crew spent two years in Antarctica studying the land and the wildlife. They were the first humans to see an emperor penguin colony. They also saw whales, birds, and tiny sea creatures. In his diaries, Scott left behind detailed accounts of his journeys and explorations. This book brings those accounts to life in vivid detail, through photos and full-color illus. This is the story of Scott’s historic Antarctic adventure and the animals he saw along the way. Ages 9-12.
