Travel far enough south across the Southern Ocean (through sub-Antarctic regions to Antarctica) and you enter a wilderness shaped by extremes. Each surface sculpted by ice and wind, this achingly beautiful, uninhabited and unspoilt area exerts an addictive pull on adventurers and travellers of all types.
Award winning photographer and acclaimed wilderness artist Peter Hall first visited the Antarctic Peninsula in 2001 on a tourist ship for a one-off "trip of a lifetime". Three years and seven cruises later, he found himself completely alone on a black and deserted beach with only a tent, the wind and the birds for company - and seventeen days alone on perhaps the most environmentally and historically fascinating island in Antarctica; the actively volcanic Deception Island.
Experienced through his words, superb images and paintbrush this book offers a unique vision of what is truly the planets last untouched wilderness area.
