About this book

This book is about a voyage of discovery to exceptional places. Photographer Eric Brasseur considers the question of where might there still be real wilderness in Europe? He journeyed for days at a time through remote and inaccessible areas, without any guarantee of success, to find out.

Often enduring extreme conditions - the Finnish taiga at a temperature of minus 35 celsius and the mosquitoes of Berezina in Belorussia - Brasseur explored many different natural environments from glaciers, volcanoes, canyons and archipelagoes through to primeval forests. He watched orcas in northern Norway and encountered bears and wolves in the Italian Abruzzi. He visited unique ecosystems, some of them unspoilt, others clearly under pressure.

From the Azores to the Balkans, from the highlands of Scotland to the steppes of Russia, Brasseur observed nature - birds of prey, vegetation of all kinds, sea creatures, rare plants and much more - at its very wildest. And here, with a supporting text by Erik Verdonck and interviews with local conservationists and scientists, he shares his experiences and reveals the remarkable sights he recorded through the lens of his camera.
