Blue Ice

Travels in Antarctica
By Don Pinnock

In Blue Ice, Don Pinnock journeys to the seventh continent – the last to be discovered. He explores what drew Cook, Belllingshausen, Shackleton, Scott and other adventurers and naturalists to this vast terrain.

A wonderful collection of exquisite photographs and stories.”

~ Getaway, April 2006

With sensitive descriptions and startling photography, he travels into the heart of Antarctica’s wilderness and explores the intimate relationship between Cape Town and the frozen south.

This is an extravagant travelogue, which paints a vivid portrait of one of the most remote and unforgiving places on earth. It reveals the extremes of adventure, courage and unspoilt beauty with precision, humour and a sense of wonder.
