        One of the most famous Explorers of Antarctica is Sir James Clark Ross. At the helm of the HMS Erebus and Terror, James Clark Ross became the first man to recognise Antarctica as the continent it is rather than the collection of islands it was long assumed to terms of knowledge and coastline charting, he is regarded as the forefather of Antarctic exploration and his achievements . Books shelved as antarctic-exploration: The Lost Men: The Harrowing Saga of Shackleton's Ross Sea Party by Kelly Tyler-Lewis, The Worst Journey in the Wo.

      Terra Australis is the large continent on the bottom of this map. This list of Antarctic expeditions is a chronological list of expeditions involving Antarctica. Although the existence of a southern continent had been hypothesized as early as the writings of Ptolemy in the 1st century AD, the South Pole was not reached until Anglo-Irish explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton’s epic journeys to the white continent have inspired several books including, The Endurance: Shackleton’s Legendary Antarctic Expedition by Caroline Alexander, Shackleton’s memoir South and Alfred Lansing’s bestselling Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage.

      The World Explorer is an expedition ship which features amenities and guest comforts to maximize your Antarctic exploration trip. Discover the great white continent and one of the last true wilderness areas on earth aboard this comfortable and spacious ship, built for expeditions along the waterways of the Antarctic. This is a book about the call of the wild and the response of the spirit to a country that exists perhaps most vividly in the mind. Sara Wheeler spent seven months in Antarctica, living with its scientists and dreamers. No book is more true to the spirit of that continent–beguiling, enchanted and vast beyond the furthest reaches of our.
