Living and Working in Antarctica.
This source book, designed for 11- to 14-year-old students, seeks to describe what life is like in Antarctica. In spite of extreme weather conditions, people go to Antarctica to work every summer. Some of them stay there during the winter as well. This book seeks to supply answers to such questions as: How do people get to Antarctica? Why do they go there? What do they do in Antarctica? How do they protect themselves against the severe cold? What do they do in their spare time? A glossary of terms is included. (DB)
