Ron Naveen (au). Captures the spirit of the gentle & charming penguins while also beautifully rendering the frozen, windswept landscapes of Antarctica. Weaves together the stories of his own experiences as a field scientist with the adventures of earlier explorers who have studied these fascinating flightless birds. Recounts tales of daring voyages in the Antarctic’s dangerous seas & of the men who had to survive for months in this treacherous terrain. These stories of humans struggling to overcome the elements are paralleled with the lives of the humanlike penguins. Also writes about his love affair with penguins & the strong place they have held in his mind -- whether he is counting their numbers or studying their behavior. Color photos.
