Item description for Beyond the Imaginary Gates: Journeys in the Fjord region of Northeast Greenland by Iain Brownlie Roy...
An unrivalled collection of images of one of the last unsullied wildernesses in the world: the vast, uninhabited spaces on northeast Greenland. These beautiful, majestic and poetic landscapes exist in one of the harshest environments on earth.
Roy traces the historical background with a brief outline of Greenland's early exploration. He documents the poignant traces of the Inuit tribe-their winter houses, summer tent circles, and graves and enigmatic stone mosaics-and the structures left by the European trappers who once plied their dog-sleds in the lonely fjords.
Iain Roy's first expedition to Greenland was in 1982. He has since made 10 further expeditions. He now lives in the north-west Highlands of Scotland.
