By the author of "Below the Convergence", this account of the early days of Antarctic exploration begins in the 1830s. Three expeditions to the South Pole were launched simultaneously by the United States, France, and Britain, each nation vying to be the first to forge a path through the pack ice and venture farther south than any vessel had ever sailed before.
