SPOILER ALERT !
Yes, there is a map - pages 280/281.

This a very interesting and well-written book, EXCEPT, there appear to be NO MAPS .
At the very end I came across a MAP OF ANTARCTICA on pages 280/281 - not listed in contents and discovered by accident at the very end of the story.
Such an omission in a book primarily about exploration and science is truly astonishing. Blame the publisher, not the author.
