Emil Racoviță is the first Romanian to reach Antarctica, over 120 years ago, as a naturalist invited on the expedition of Adrien De Gerlache. These two books are intertwined. One is mostly text extracted from his journal which gives personal insight into the life of an explorer. The book's dust jacket unfolds as both a collage of photographs from the expedition and a map of the ship's course. 

The second book is an illustrated children's story that follows the imaginary journey of a little girl walking in the footsteps of her great grandfather, Emil Racoviță. Along the way she learns about the wildlife of the Antarctic. Both books are illustrated by an artist in linocut prints.
