The awe-inspiring southernmost place on our Earth

Who discovered the Antarctic? How cold is it there, and do polar bears live at the South Pole?

Everyone knows it, but hardly anyone can say more than three sentences about it: the continent that belongs to no one, but to all of us, which may only be used peacefully, on which the testing of weapons and waste disposal is prohibited. Antarctica is probably the most unknown of all continents.

David Böhm tells of the discovery of Antarctica, of its peculiarities. But his full-length illustrated book conveys much more, namely what we can learn from the Antarctic. In preparation for the book, he travelled to Antarctica with his 10- and 11-year-old sons, gaining his own experiences gathering impressions of the continent. He found out that in the Antarctic you can make do with far less than we can imagine.
