Reliure : Hardback

Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. There are few places today that are truly wild. Macquarie Island - a small, wind-blasted rocky outcrop between Tasmania and Antarctica - is still one such place. In exquisite pictures and words, A Hostile Beauty tells the story of this extraordinary Australian outpost teeming with life. Alistair Dermer s stunning photography takes us up close and personal with the inhabitants: gentle gentoo penguins, engorged elephant-seal bulls and scavenging skuas, and deep into a landscape that is as beautiful and life-giving as it is hostile and pitiless. Let these superb images, from the fury of the squalling Southern Ocean to the warm, trusting eyes of a seal pup, transport you to one of the most remote and spectacular places on Earth.
