Detailed Product Description

London, 1973, 1st UK edition. 175 pp, 16 photos, maps. Hardcover book, with a Dust Jacket, both book and DJ are Fine. No writing or wear in the book, DJ is unchipped.

One of three Shipton books not included in the 6 book collection, and the only one whose content is not touched on in the books that are in the collection.

Eric Shipton's history of Tierra Del Fuego, an area that beckoned him after WW2. Eric Shipton opens and concludes his narrative of the many explorers and others who sailed or settled there with an account of his own explorations in the 'land of fire'.

The result is a richly colored story of courage, shame and madness. A history of discovery and colonization, with a chapter on his first approach to the remote Mount Burney.
