Subantarctic Wilderness: Macquarie Island

Synopsis

A tiny speck of land caught between Australia and Antarctica, Macquarie Island is as remote and rugged as it is beautiful. Despite its small size, for huge numbers of seals, penguins, and albatrosses this raw, elemental landscape is a sanctuary, while for humans it has long been a base for the exploitation of wildlife and for intrepid adventurers. Lavishly illustrated with exemplary photography and specially commissioned artwork, this stunning volume explores all aspects of Macquarie Island, including its rich history and life on the island today, its geology and plant life, and the stunning variety of wildlife that call the isle home.
