Antarctic Impressions: Seasons in the Southern Ocean
Author: Peter Steyn
One of South Africa’s best-selling birding authors and photographers, Peter Steyn has been travelling to the Antarctic and the islands of the Southern Ocean for many years. Antarctic Impressions is a record in words and pictures of these journeys, spanning the period from his first trip to Marion Island in 1979 to a 1997 visit to the Emperor Penguin colonies on the Antarctic coast. The book covers visits to the Antarctic Peninsula, the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, Tristan da Cunha, Gough Island and other outposts of this remote region. The author’s particular interest in the magnificent and prolific bird life of the Antarctic region, and this book will be certain to attract birding enthusiasts. However, there is much to offer readers interested in the exploration of the region and in the ecology of these fragile environments.
