Greenland for $1.99 - in more detail
WHEN AUTHORS Richard Starks and Miriam Murcutt were seeking a different travel experience in a place that had not yet been ‘discovered’, they decided to head for Greenland.
They were not planning to write a book about their journey, but they found Greenland so intriguing they felt compelled to capture some of what the country has to offer.
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.
