Product Description


Text and pictures give a strong impression of a distinctive place, a place that is a frozen desert… The book would be an excellent resource for science lessons as it gives much more than superficial information about food webs and ecosystems (Margaret Mallet English Association Magazine)

a thought provoking and awe-inspiring journal of her visit to the area, with Lucia de Leiris's artwork capturing the raw beauty of the region (Oxford Times)
