Learn about early humans and how they survived in one of the most hostile environments on Earth, the tragic and treacherous journeys of early polar explorers, how icy landscapes developed, and meet the animals who make these bleak icy worlds their home. Detailed annotations explore the place of ice on our planet, and how we and other animals survive and interact with it.
