Icebergs - The Antarctic comes to town product reviews

"I've always wanted to go to Antarctica. I never thought the Antarctic would come to me." : by Stephen Jaquiery.

It was a sight we thought we'd never see - icebergs off the coast of southern New Zealand. Otago Daily Times photographer, Stephen Jaquiery, was the first on the scene in November 2006. His magnificant photographs not only inspired a new sightseeing industry, but also provoked an avalnche of interest from around the world.

Writer Dave Cull takes us to the frozen continent and tracks the journey of the icebergs: from their Antarctic beginnings to their appearance and demise in the temperate waters off the coast of the South Island.

In November 2006 something happened that captured the imagination of our nation, an event last seen over 70 years earlier, icebergs visible from NZ's southern mainland coastline. Two giant behemoths of freshwater glacial ice had made a stunning journey to come visit us, and spark an adventure tourism surge not likely to repeat any time soon.
In helicopters and fixed wing craft, both sturdy and homebuilt, people flocked from around NZ and Australia to our southern shores to snap photographs of these remarkable wandering pieces of Antarctica. For the less adventurous, long telescopic lenses and Dunedin's high hills were all they needed to get a glimpse of these remarkable visitors, who changed shape and orientation on a daily basis.
This is a great pictorial reference book to have on the coffee table for visitors from further afield, as this is likely to be an extremely rare event, even with global warming causing ever-larger chunks of the ice shelves to break loose and go a-wandering. Jam-packed with stunning images by award winning photographer Stephen Jaquiery, and some fascinating background narrative written by Dave Cull, this book not only shows us the 'bergs as they went sailing past our shores, but backtracks and informs us of how they came to be, where they are from, and examples of their cousins, both bigger and smaller, around the Ross Sea and Antarctica in general.
Longacre did well to publish this book, and you would do well to read it, even if only once.
