"Approximately 1500 km south-east of Tasmania and 1100 km south-west of New Zealand lies Macquarie Island. The spellbinding beauty of this small, isolated subantarctic island is captured in this book through the lens of author Aleks Terauds and through the illustrations of co-author and designer Fiona Stewart. Terauds' empathy with this wild place comes through his many months spent there each year studying albatrosses. Part of Australia, an International Biosphere Reserve and a World Heritage Area, the island is a wildlife paradise but once it was a centre for sealers and a stop-over for Antarctic explorers. Today a research station maintained by the Australian Antarctic Division focuses on climate change, wildlife research, meteorology and geology. The island is a regular drop-off point for the increasing number of visitors to Antarctic and other subantarctic islands. With only 30,000 words to describe the islands geology, flora, fauna and human history, the wonderful visual elements of the book are left to tell the island's compelling story."--Provided by publisher.
