About the Author:

Winner of the National Book Award and the American Book Award, Peter Matthiessen is the author of over fifteen books of fiction and nonfiction, including "The Snow Leopard " (1978), "At Play in the Fields of the Lord" (1965), "Far Tortuga" (1975), "In the Spirit of Crazy Horse" (1992), and "Bone by Bone" (1999). Ilan Stavans teaches at Amherst College. He is the author of "The Hispanic Condition" (1995), "Art and Anger" (1996), and "The Riddle of Cantinflas" (1998), and editor of "The Oxford Book of Latin American Essays" (1997).

Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities as well as one of National Geographic's Explorers-in-Residence, is credited with such monumental discoveries as the tombs of the Giza pyramid builders and the Valley of the Golden Mummies, which inspired a best-selling book. He has been a consultant for film, television, and magazines, and he lectures throughout the world. In 2000, Hawass received the Distinguished Scholar award from the Association of Egyptian American Scholars.
Kenneth Garrett, a specialist in archaeology, paleontology, and ancient cultures, has photographed archaeological sites and subjects worldwide on assignment for National Geographic. His work has also been featured in many books, including two of Dr. Hawass's previous works.

Descripción National Geographic Books, United States, 2005. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Now in a paperback edition, America s greatest literary naturalist takes readers on the ultimate wildlife safari: a true back-of-beyond voyage to the world s most unforgiving land, the islands off Antarctica s northern ice shelf, and to that second most remote place on earth, South Georgia Island, the last outpost in a great emptiness of ocean. Matthiessen has once again lit upon a subject profoundly fitted to his creative genius. He is simply the ultimate lyricist of loss, a writer brilliantly attentive to the way vanishings are braided into even the most exquisite moments of our lives. He agonizes over what is passing away, but does so in a manner that increases our appreciation of what remains. In End of the Earth, Matthiessen joins the crew of the Akademik - a 384-foot research vessel bound for wild and storied South Georgia Island and Antarctica. Along the way we are treated to a patented Matthiessen brew: lyricism and emotion applied to the sharp-eyed evaluations of a seasoned naturalist. Brilliant and instructive observations of the creatures inhabiting this far-flung region are sprinkled with eloquent disquisition on the history of the region (Shackleton, Captain Cook, Nº de ref. de la librería AAS9780792268369
