In this podcast interview, we speak to English journalist, broadcaster and travel writer, Sara Wheeler. She’s the author of Terra Incognita: Travels in Antarctica. First published in 1996, this personal account of her seven months' travelling to diverse parts of Antarctica went on to become an international bestseller. Translated into nine languages including Mandarin, Terra Incognita sold in excess of 100,000 copies around the world. The New York Times called it “gripping, emotional” and “compelling.”
While in Antarctica, Sara travelled to the US stations at the South Pole and McMurdo, the New Zealand Scott Base, the Italian Mario Zuccelli Station, as well as the British Antarctic Survey’s Rothera Station.
