Summary
For lovers of exciting non-fiction about remote and rarely visited places - and maritime adventures. True first-person stories of the Southern Ocean from NZ to Antarctica - the windiest, roughest, most isolated body of water on earth. * Can be compared with: * Simon Winchester's Atlantic * Johnny Wray's South Sea Vagabonds - a 2014 NZ bestseller * Joan Druett's Island of the Lost * Bruce Chatwin's classic In Patagonia. Motivated and media-savvy author & perennially popular genre The Southern Ocean is Earth's most notorious body of water. It circles Antarctica, acts as a violent mixer of wind and water, links all other oceans, is feared by sailors and explorers - and is mostly ignored by the rest of the world. Human influence is minimal; the idea of settlement is absurd. There are only widely scattered outposts of people who have come ashore intentionally and temporarily - or have been shipwrecked or abandoned. The author is an intrepid sailor who has guided and spun stories on many southern ocean voyages to Antarctica and subantarctic islands and led the Artists in Antarctica Programme
Summary
"Stories from outposts of the Southern Ocean, the windiest, roughest, most isolated ocean on Earth. Venture to the deep south and you will experience a world like no other - forbidding Subantarctic islands, astounding sea creatures, death-defying plants, the constant company of birds. As an expedition guide, Matt Vance has accompanied intrepid tourists and birders, artists and writers. He gives a first -person account of the lonely places where lives have been changed and history made"--Publisher information
