Sophie Scott Goes South

Sophie Scott Goes South Book CoverNine-year-old Sophie accompanies her dad, the captain of an ice breaker, on a month-long journey to Mawson Station in Antarctica.  Her diary is packed with facts about the South Pole’s early explorers, Antarctic animals, and life in an Antarctic research station.  Endpapers with detailed maps; photographs of icebergs and sunsets; diagrams of the ship; and student paintings from Kids Antarctic Art, a traveling exhibition of children’s interpretations of the continent, reveal the wonder of Antarctica through a little girls eyes.  A glossary is included.  This book is based on the author’s own six-week excursion on the Aurora Australis. mjw
