About this book

Namibia's Skeleton Coast is one of the most inhospitable regions in the world. Over the centuries, merciless storms, dense fog banks and strong currents have spelt doom for many ships whose broken hulls now line this coastline like forgotten tombstones. Yet the arid coastal strip sustains creatures such as the stately gemsbok and the unique fog-drinking beetle. It is also the domain of the desert elephant, a near-mythical creature that has adapted to a virtually waterless environment, and the legendary desert lion, once thought to be extinct. Life in this mysterious landscape is gruelling: only the tenacious and inventive are able to adapt to the extreme conditions and have a chance at survival.

The images of award-winning nature photographer Thorsten Milse reveal an unexpected beauty, a richness in wildlife and a bold scheme of colours, curves and nuances only nature can create with such abandon. Breathtaking and expansive in its scope, "Skeleton Coast" is a telling reminder of nature's fragility and of the need to conserve it.
