Forgotten footprints


De achterflap:

Hard on the heels of his masterful and critically acclaimed Wales Book of the Year, Cloud Road: A Journey Through the Inca Heartland, John Harrison's Forgotten Footprints is the untold story of the sailors, sealers and eccentrics who discovered the last continent: Antarctica.

A thrilling record of lost triumph and tragedy, a saga of adventure and ambition against all odds, and a compelling insight into extraordinary personalities and the times that shaped them, Forgotten Footprints captures the fascination of this most extreme, mysterious and beautiful of environments in John Harrison's characteristically vivid and affecting prose.
