   schema:description "After twenty-five years of cruising the world's oceans, renowned sailors Pauline and Tim Carr found themselves drawn to the lonely places of the higher latitudes to experience earth's last unspoiled regions. Antarctic Oasis records the culmination of those exploits. Genuine adventurers, the Carrs have lived year-round on South Georgia for five years, the island's only permanent inhabitants, experiencing a way of life that has all but vanished from our modern world. A forgotten remnant of the far-flung British Empire, South Georgia is a splendid if forbidding land of towering, glacier-clad mountains with a treacherous, storm-torn coast indented with sheltered bays. During its polar summer, the island's verdant shoreline offers Antarctic wildlife a place to mate and rear their young. The planet's greatest concentration of seals, penguins, albatrosses, and other birds throngs the shores. Among the very few humans on the scene, the Carrs have learned intimate details about the lives of these fearless wild animals and their environment."@en ;
