About this book

The Dry Valleys of Antarctica are one of the last truly remote places left on earth. With no cover of ice or snow and no rainfall, these dry valleys are 'islands' in the midst of the frozen ice of the Antarctic continent, a wonderfully strange environment of ice-covered lakes that hold some of the planet's purest water, huge expanses of wind-sculpted rock, barren eroded land forms, and glaciers that intrude into the edges of the valleys. Access to this unique environment is extremely restricted, and subsequently Improbable Eden will be the first comprehensive illustrated book to be published exclusively on the Dry Valleys.

The book is built around the magnificent landscape photography of Craig Potton, who gathered these images over two separate trips to Antarctica. The photographs are supported by a text from acclaimed American writer Bill Green, whose previous non-fiction writing on the Dry Valleys won the prestigious John Burroughs Medal for the finest nature writing in the USA.
