Translated from the back cover:
"1930. Miskatonic University organized an expedition of exploration in the Antarctic. Several strange discoveries had been made there but few testimonies were given by the rare survivors.
“The Mountains of Madness”, a story penned by Howard Phillips Lovecraft, talks about those events.
Today, 1933, the Starkweather – Moore expedition is preparing to follow the trail of the first one. They will leave New York to head to the heart of the Antarctic, searching for answers to the many questions and traces left by their predecessors.
The investigators will participate to the fantastic human adventure and will try to survive by facing many hazards of life, as well as the forces of nature.
This book constitutes the biggest campaign ever written for The Call of Cthulhu. Dozens of hours of exhausting and chilling gameplay, thousands of kilometers to travel, tons of pemmican to eat…
This [French] edition goes much further than the US and constitutes a fully updated version, with about 300 pages of scenario, appendixes, photographs, pictures, descriptions and maps that have been added.
Expect to live a unique experience that you will remember forever…"
