Sobre o livro
This is the final in a trilogy of books documenting the scenery and plant life in three very different wilderness areas of Kamchatka. It is centred on a stark, ash and cinder covered area of the very active Tolbachik Volcanic Region. A wide variety of fascinating fungi were found in the forested areas. Scenery includes the cinder cones and lava resulting from recent years of volcanic activity.
The first two books (and digital PDFs) are titled 'South Kamchatka Nature Park' and 'Bystrinsky Nature Park’. Both are also published by, and available from, Blurb.
My partner and fellow photographer, David Young, and I live in Canberra, Australia. We have been exploring the world for many years, often to places off the beaten track. We enjoy meeting people, learning about different cultures, experiencing new environments and capturing the essence of people and places through our photography and videography. On our travels, we also enjoy discovering our family history, filming gardens and seeking out wildflowers. David is a horticulturist and has been a radio broadcaster and television presenter. I've spent a lifetime in education and enjoy my voluntary mentoring role with university students and researchers.
