The Adélie Penguins who call Antarctica home have been the subject of long-term studies--scientists may know more about how these penguins will adjust to climate change than about any other creature in the world.
With wit, curiosity, and a deep knowledge of his subject, Strycker weaves a captivating tale of penguins and their researchers on the coldest, driest, highest, and windiest continent on Earth. He recounts the reality of life at the end of the Earth--thousand-year-old penguin mummies, hurricane-force blizzards, and day-to-day existence in below freezing temperatures--and delves deep into a world of science, obsession, and birds.
Among Penguins Birders, lovers of the Antarctic, and fans of first-person adventure narratives will be fascinated by Strycker's book.
