Below the Convergence by Alan Gurney is a fascinating read. For me a real page burner. Lots of interesting material. Alan Gurney did a great job of giving a history of exploration south of the convergence zone from 1699-1839. Anyone interested in Antarctic exploration, and the different animals encountered in the deep southern Atlantic Ocean will like this book. Some great maps showing the routes the various yal Navy/, merchant marine members went as well as some interesting b/w pictures.

THE GREENPEACE BOOK OF ANTARCTICA: A NEW VIEW OF THE SEVENTH CONTINENT Greenpeace offers a beautiful volume with exquisite photography, artwork, and prose. Many short chapters provide insights into Antarctica’s geography, geology, and abundant flora and fauna. Scott’s amazingly detailed diary is a vivid, personal narrative of the team’s daily progress towards their goal, his impressions of the harsh conditions they endure, the stark beauty that surrounds them, and his own increasingly desperate ambition to beat his rivals to the Pole. The book includes contributions from 30 of the foremost living mountaineers and includes several sections on Antarctica, including early ascents of Vinson Massif, supported by ANI.
