Gondwana: The results of an expedition of Antarctica by Diane Tuft, Gondwana: Images of an Ancient Land features over 50 stunning images that capture Antarctica’s untouched splendor with colors, textures and compositions that verge on the surreal. Named for the megacontinent that once contained what is now Antarctica, this book represents a living reflection of millions of years of Earth’s history.

Gaia: Guy Laliberté's documentation of his experience in space features his photographs of Earth as seen from the International Space Station. Captivated by the beauty of the surface of the Earth, Laliberté’s evocative photos show the colors and textures visible only 220 miles away. A stable subject and a moving photographer-the ISS is moving at 17,500 miles per hour (about 5 miles per second), doing 6 tours of the earth every 24 hours–made for truly original conditions. Using the Nikon D3S and Nikon D3X digital-SLR cameras, deserts resemble contemporary abstract paintings, cities rise up like mini-mountain ranges, and faces and figures are revealed in nature. Laliberté dedicated his personal spaceflight to raising awareness about water issues facing humankind, making his the first, in his own words, "poetic social mission" in space. Proceeds from book sales go to Laliberté’s One Drop Foundation, a non-profit organization created to fight poverty worldwide by ensuring that everyone across the planet has access to water, now and in the future.

South Pole: Although it's a piece of history learned by every British student, the Terra Nova Expedition of 1910-1913 remains an epic story unknown to many. In this ultimate showing of life and boundless bravery, Robert F. Scott and his five-man team battled the elements—traveling through subzero temperatures with motor sledges and ponies—in the hope of being the first to reach this uninhabited territory. Arriving at the South Pole on January 18, 1912, the adventurers were greeted by their worst nightmare: a Norwegian flag.
