ReBlog: Camp Reads: Antarctica Edition

Happy Monday Campers!

Thought we would share some recent book reviews done by one of our outdoorsy blogger friends and correspondent over at Alpine Lily. She has assembled a pretty great list relevant to Antarctica {swoon}

Go check out the full list of reviews and see if any of these reads would tickle your fancy for those wonderfully slow and peaceful days of “foresting” this summer. Picture hammock in the sun, birds chirping, and you reading about the south pole!

Antarctica: An Intimate Portrait by Gabrielle Walker

This book is a great place to start for all things Antarctica. Walker spent a year on the white continent visiting several bases to see what it’s really like to live and work there. She follows scientists searching the Dry Valleys for tiny bacterial life that may give clues to what life mightAlpine Lily, book reviews, camping, good reads, like on Mars. She scanned the snow in harsh conditions searching for meteorites and visited the Dark Sector where the telescopes live. Walker gives the best descriptions that I’ve read of what it really feels like to be there over the winter with the isolation and feelings of madness and cabin fever. The history of Antarctic exploration woven throughout completes the book and gives the reader a thorough overview of the continent. If you only read one book on the list- make it this one. // Hardcover

    Check out this Warmer Mattress Pad for CAMPING! It is body heat activated based on the principle of the space blanket. Just place in between the mattress & the sheet and its thermo-lining reflects body heat and warms a crib or bed up to 10 degrees above room temperature.
