In the 1830s, the forbidding Antarctic region represented the ultimate mystery. The prospect of discovering a lucrative whaling ground made this uncharted and untapped region especially enticing. Three expeditions to the pole were launched simultaneously by the United States, France, and Britain, each vying to be the first to venture farther south than any vessel had ever sailed before. These expeditions paved the way for the explorers, traders, and whalers of what was to become known as the "Heroic Age" of Antarctic exploration. The Race to the White Continent is a captivating account of their adventures.

誰該放手，讓擁有的人留住幸福的微笑？ 常常，我們無法一心一意，也無法要求對方一心一意。 常常，我們會迷失，不知道自己究竟喜歡的是誰。 常常，我們會心猿意馬，禁不了誘惑，捱不起考驗。 幾乎，我們無法規定真命天子在第一時間出現。 幾乎，我們也沒有辦法強制喜歡的人也得喜歡自己。 我們就因此停止追求幸福嗎？ You，re the apple of my eye. 我們永遠都在期待，某天深深喜歡的人，能對自己說出這句話。 「搭訕地獄百人斬」告白速成法、地下道中巧合的塔羅牌占卜， 預言兩個女孩的真命天子即將出現...... 誰該放手，讓擁有的人留住幸福的微笑？ 牽手或放手，幸福或祝福。 戰鬥吧，妖怪小雪！
