Description

‘Horizon is magnificent; a contemporary epic’ Robert Macfarlane author of Underland From the author of the classic Arctic Dreams comes a vivid recollection of his travels around the world and the encounters that have shaped an extraordinary life. Taking us nearly from pole to pole – from modern megacities to some of the earth’s most remote regions – Barry Lopez gives us his most far-ranging and personal work to date. Spanning decades of travel Horizon describes journeys to six regions of the world: from Western Oregon to the High Arctic; from the Galapagos to the Kenyan desert; from Botany Bay in Australia to finally unforgettably the ice shelves of Antarctica. Lopez also probes the history of humanity’s quests and explorations from prehistoric expeditions to today’s ecotourism. He takes us to some of the hottest coldest and most desolate places on the globe via friendships with scientists archaeologists artists and local residents in a book that makes us see the world differently. It is the crowning achievement of one of the world’s best travel writers. ‘The greatest nature writer in the world … He is also the greatest travel writer … [an] astounding new memoir’ Sunday Times
