Explorer and dog trainer Keizo Funatsu called out into the darkness, Im here! Im here! Yet the howling winds were so loud that no one could hear his cries. He was lost in Antarctica. Keizo was part of an international expedition that had just dogsledded 3,725 miles across the frozen continent, past the South Pole. He had left his tent to feed the sled dogs when a blizzard struck, blinding him and preventing him from finding his way back to safety. Would Keizo find help before it was too late? Lost in the Antarctic is a heart-stopping collection of true stories about what its like to be lost and forced to survive in the Antarctic. Captivating, first-person accounts of survivors include a man who fell into a deep crevasse, dangling only by a rope, and a famous explorer whose ship became stuck in the ice not far from Antarctica, forcing him to risk his life to seek help for his stranded men. The book also includes general information about the Antarctic region and the incredible creatures that live there. Large color photos, maps, and fact boxes enrich the exciting survival tales. Written in narrative format, this book is sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats.
