The Irish have left an indelible mark in the most hostile territory on earth, Antarctica.
It was the Irish who pioneered a route to the Antarctic and whose adventures 100 years ago gripped the attention of the world.
Their contribution is now told in a single volume celebrating their amazing exploits.
The earliest voyages to the Antarctic ice are saluted, with due consideration given to present-day adventurers who have taken up the torch.
Quotations from first-hand accounts, photographs of the intrepid men, relics, medals, and sites enhance the poignant text.
