Atlas of Untamed Places: An Extraordinary JourneyThrough our Wild World

Author(s): Chris Fitch


In a world that has increasingly become tamed by human activity, the true wild holds a growing mysticism. Rugged landscapes with unspoilt scenery invoke romantic visions of paradise, but there are also intense and powerful wildernesses that produce fear and awe alike and unexplored zones where feral wildlife roams in the shadows. Chris Fitch takes you on a journey through the world's most wild places, visiting immensely diverse floral kingdoms, remote jungles abundant with exotic birds, and both freezing cold and scorching hot inhospitable environments. From these natural havens we travel to the extreme and the incredible: lightening inducing lakes, acidic mud baths, and man-eating tiger kingdoms. As well as those wildernesses being reclaimed by nature, such as Chernobyl, that after being left abandoned for years has returned to a natural wild habitat, free from human intervention. Not forgetting those most bizarre of destinations, such as the tidal surges of the Qiantang River, the bridge to Modo Island that emerges from the sea, and the strange magnetic pull of Jubuka rock. With beautiful maps and stunning photography, An Atlas of Untamed Places is an intrepid voyage to nature's most unusual, unpredictable, and extraordinarily wild destinations.

2017. First edition. A near fine copy only marked by a previous owners name sticker to the front free endpaper. The d/w is unclipped and fine.
