Beyond the Horizon : the Life of Twenty of the World's Most Remote PlacesBook - 2012
"In [this book], Roger Lovegrove takes us on a journey to twenty of the most remote, remarkable places on Earth. The range is diverse and spectacular, familiar and little-known. We visit the stark, volcanic rock of Jan Mayen ..., the vibrant tropical sands of Guam, and the ice-choked Arctic waters of Halfmoon Island. ... Lovegrove tells the story of each island, with its own remarkable wildlife and its unique self-contained habitat, as well as the impact of [humankind] on these fragile ecosystems."--Back cover.
