AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Macquarie Island lies in the Southern Ocean, between Antarctica and New Zealand. A speck of green in the vast, windswept sea, it is a haven for many creatures that live above and below the waves.

'In One Small Island, Alison Lester and Coral Tulloch bring us the story of this remote and precious World Heritage Site. Together they explore the island's unique geological beginnings, discovery and degradation at the hands of humans, and the battle to restore it today.

'This beautifully presented book leaves us with an important question: can Macquarie Island and places like it be saved?' (From the publisher's website.)
