Centenary of Captain Scott's expedition to the South Pole. This is 'the most gripping story of polar exploration ever written.' --Sir Ranulph Fiennes. WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY SIR RANULPH FIENNES The Last Expedition is Captain Scott's gripping account of his expedition to the South Pole in 1910-12. It was meant to be a voyage of scientific discovery and a heroic exploration of the last unconquered wilderness. Scott's expedition, carried in the Terra Nova, pitted him and his team not only against the elements but also against the Norwegian explorer, Amundsen. Ultimately, Scott was beaten by both. The journals are full of incident and drama, courage and endurance, hope and bitter disappointment. These journals were found, along with Scott's body, several months after his death and just 11 miles from base camp and safety.

Time of Change

Mireya Maso mostly works in video and photography, and in recent years she has essentially concerned herself with the study of human beings through their action on the landscape. In her project ANTARCTICA: TIME OF CHANGE, however, she engages with a natural landscape barely touched by man, and focuses her investigations on the mechanisms of perception of the human being in an environment in continual transformation. The conversations between the artist and scientists from different disciplines provide the basis for a discussion in the book which considers questions such as Perception in the Antarctic environment in terms of glaciology, biology, psychology, neurology and other disciplines, and The interpretation of Antarctic microorganisms from the perspective of bionanotechnology and architecture.

With Selections from her Correspondence

These Personal Recollections contain the memoirs and a selection of the correspondence of the nineteenth-century polymath Mary Somerville (1780-1872). The book was first published in 1873, a year after Mary's death, by her daughter Martha, who wrote brief introductions to the text. Mary Somerville is best known for her pioneering scientific publications which include her translation of Laplace's Mécanique Céleste (1831: also resissued in this series); On the Connection of the Physical Sciences (1834); Physical Geography (1848); and On Molecular and Microscopic Science (1869). Through these publications, Somerville made a lasting contribution to the dissemination of scientific knowledge. Somerville's correspondence deals primarily with her public life, while the memoirs offer insight into her private sphere: the discouragement she faced in pursuit of learning; her passion for women's education and suffrage; family life; and personal faith. Her story is compelling, and her experiences may resonate with many women today.

For the fifth time, the Author displays his so-called No Sense of Humor in a laughable array of pet title quests, childrens stories and a pet mystery along with a childrens version of what the Author describes as Unanswered Questions. This book shows the continuing saga of four men who display their sense of humor through pranks, narrated stories and an unending ritual that will never change. In addition, the Author does his best to convince you the reader that the final chapter is only a prelude to the next sequel; the Next Generation.
