"Adams set out with Ronald Lockley and photographer Peter Hirst-0Smith aboard a ship that would take them -- and seventy-five other passengers [aboard the Lindblad Explorer] -- down from Tierra del Fuego and eventually back up to the southern tip of New Zealand: a trip of some 6,500 miles along the coasts and through the seas of Antarctica. [...] They visited Captain Scott's huts -- one built in 1902, the other in 1911, shortly before Scott's death -- and werew welcomed at American and New Zealand science stations. And they spent virtually an entire month at sea, observing a truly astounding array of wildlife: finback and killer whales, sealions, seals, and dolphins; albatrosses, sheathbills, skuas, petrels, cormorants, and (of course) multitudes of penguins." - from the dj.Vg in unclipped dj. 30.00
