The Irish have left an indelible mark in the most hostile territory on earth; Antarctica.

This book celebrates 200 years of great endeavours by Irish explorers. It salutes Ireland's unique link with the Antarctic that continues on even today.

Starting with Edward Bransfield, in the early 19th century who first sighted the continent; Francis Crozier who first mapped the icy wilderness; Ernest Shackleton, who made four epic journeys; Tom Crean who returned to Ireland after his many exploits in 1920 to find himself in the middle of Ireland's war of independence; Crean's Munster colleagues, Patrick Keohane and Robert Forde; the McCarthy brothers; and a final chapter on today's Irish explorers.

The author Michael Smith has produced a wonderful narrative to bring history to life and the book has many photographs and maps to enhance the stories being told.
