Description
A mere 450 miles from the North Pole, Ellesmere Island is both a mountainous jewel and a legendary death trap. Here, photojournalist Jerry Kobalenko documents his 14-year, 4000-mile quest through this treacherous terrain, following in the footsteps of the island's first explorers and investigating their motives and mistakes to result in an astounding book that is part travelogue, part history and part adventure mystery. To be serialised in BBC Wildlife in December 2002. Good insights from a writer who has a gift for storytelling' - Library Journal'
