An Antarctic adventure of solo kayaking—an inspirational and wondrous real-life story.
A record of an intrepid woman’s solo kayaking expedition around the South Georgia Island, Antarctica, to raise awareness for the magnificent Albatross who are perishing by the thousands in the baited long lines of commercial ocean fishing.
Augmented with forty-five glorious photographs that capture the sheer beauty and dangers of Antarctica.
“You have seen the albatross in full flight like few have witnessed, with salt in your teeth . . . I cannot think of a better spokesperson for all things wild, because, you Hayley, in your own intimate way, have flown with the Albatross.”
—Brian Keating, noted Canadian naturalist, in the ForeWord
