The beautiful coffee-table book Marion & Prince Edward: Africa’s Southern Islands authored by Aleks Terauds, John Cooper, Steven Chown and Peter Ryan.

A coffee-table book that is a pleasure both to read and to look at – on the history, beauty and conservation of South Africa’s southernmost territories, Marion Island and Prince Edward Island, has been compiled by experienced researchers who have spent decades studying sub-Antarctic islands.
