That is what this book of journalist and writer Valentín Carrera holds for us. We were lucky enough to meet him at Hesperides during our recording. We spent five weeks, he the entire campaign, five months!

This was not his first trip to Antarctica. He had already been in the eighties, in the first research ship that Spain sent to those waters. At his side we discovered a huge journalist and a good friend. It is difficult to find people as generous as he, who shared with us his contacts and ideas to enrich our work. In his book he talks about his two trips and about historical explorations. It accompanies it with a profusion of photographs and maps. It is an essential book if you are interested in Antarctica. If you were not interested, it will be done after reading it.

It is published by Ediciones del Viento, the quintessential publisher of travel literature. You can not ask for more. I know this because with them I published in 2015 a book about Syria that they took care of in detail.
