Greenland for $1.99
Greenland is an easy country to explore on your own. There’s no need to join a group. In fact, you’re better off without one, because only then can you experience the haunting isolation of Greenland’s painted towns as well as its empty tundra, fjords, icebergs and crenelated glaciers.
This short e-book – illustrated by more than twenty photographs – is the story of the authors’ journey inside the Arctic Circle. As a reader, you can walk with them over the Greenland ice cap, touch the world’s biggest and fastest-moving glacier, hike along the Arctic Circle Trail, hear sled-dogs yowl and watch whales surface near drifting icebergs, as well as listen to the Inuit talk about the future of their country.
All for just $1.99 - either on your Kindle, or on a tablet or other device that has a free (from Amazon) Kindle app.
Early reviews of Greenland for $1.99
“Starks and Murcutt spend around a month in Greenland. Their journey commenced with them flying into Nuuk, and spending time there before travelling to Kangerlussuaq, Sisimiut, and Ilulissat. Their travels included hiking sections of the Arctic Circle Trail…. The book contains some photographs which I enjoyed seeing and which complemented the narrative well. I particularly enjoyed the images of colourful, picture perfect villages…. I found the book intriguing and it has opened a desire in me to know more. But, after all, isn't that what all good books do?” - Jodie, amazon.com reviewer
“The authors tell the story of their travels to Greenland, imparting geographical and historical facts of the country and the people, and figures regarding populations (amazingly small), the sizes of things such as glaciers (amazingly gigantic) and the icecap, and observations on global warming in a relaxed but well-written way that made for very easy and interesting reading. The authors' descriptions are such that I could "feel" the cold and "see" what is certainly awesome scenery….. I recommend this book to any armchair traveller, and I'll be reading the authors' other books too!” - Shannon, Goodreads reviewer
