Synopsis

Subtitled : Journeys in the Fjord Region of Northeast Greenland.

An unrivalled collection of images of one of the last unsullied wildernesses in the world: the vast, uninhabited spaces on northeast Greenland. These beautiful, majestic and poetic landscapes exist in one of the harshest environments on earth.

Roy traces the historical background with a brief outline of Greenland’s early exploration. He documents the poignant traces of the Inuit tribe - their winter houses, summer tent circles, and graves and enigmatic stone mosaics - and the structures left by the European trappers who once plied their dog-sleds in the lonely fjords.

There are now precious few places left on earth with which we do not feel familiar, if not from first hand experience then at least from the perspective of the armchair traveller - and fewer still where the camera has not yet prescribed our vision.

This is a magnificent book superbly illustrated with B&W images & maps from over 15 years of adventurous journeys to this remote Arctic wilderness.
