A history of Antarctica by Stephen Martin( Book )
7 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Martin, writer and historian, provides an illustrated history of Antarctica from its prehistory and geography to its early modern and contemporary presence in literature, politics, and science, and elucidates the varied experiences of humanity with the continent. Antarctica experience takes on a deeply personal, spiritual tone: icecaps become metaphors, birds such as snow petrels become symbols of hope and contact, the trip becomes a metaphysical journey and profound experiences emerge in the stories and narratives. Both broad and detailed, the work provides a useful lens through which to view the development of contemporary science, politics and environmental action in the context of this important region

"Throughout the history of European settlement in Australia, there have been people who cared for, and worked to protect, the land. Their actions form a long, encouraging thread through the story of our relationship with the environment. This exhibition shows some of the history that has led to the current state of the environment in New South Wales, and in other parts of Australia. Human impact is demonstrated here in four places: City, Coast, River and Island."--State Library of NSW website as at 3/12/07
