Antarctica

(1997)
A novel by

 
 
In the next century will Antarctica be looted for oil, or will eco-terrorists save our last wilderness?

Like the land it protects, the Antarctic Treaty is dissolving. The world's last unstripped asset, Antarctica is in danger of becoming a free-for-all; oil reconnaissance teams intent on mass extraction, adventure travellers trailing waste across the tundra, and multinational interests covertly vying for influence. But a new radical environmentalist group is determined to show humanity that Antarctica cannot be plundered like the rest of the world. Whatever it takes.

Antarctica: an eco-thriller, a romance, and a passionate study of a desolate continent. Against a majestic backdrop, multi-award-winning author Kim Stanley Robinson paints his latest big picture by focusing on the personal triumphs and tragedies of the innocents, the activists, and the ruthless exploiters who are fighting their version of the future for Earth's last great wilderness.
