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.
