The First Kayak Journey Around Shackleton's South Georgia
By Mark Jones, Graham Charles, Marcus Waters

144 pages
Other Information: photographs
Published In: New Zealand, 01 October 2007

Unclaimed Coast is an enthralling tale of triumph, told by three men passionate about the environment and challenging themselves to the extent of their abilities. The story covers each leg of their journey and dives into the island's fascinating history, wildlife and environment, Shackleton's legacy and previous attempts at circumnavigation. Circumnavigating South Georgia Island by kayak was attempted twice before the authors' successful expedition. Both attempts failed, thwarted by bad weather, lack of rations and exhaustion. South Georgia Island is an enigma. Technically an Antarctic island, it accommodates wildlife in stupendous numbers and is famously the island Shackleton and five men heroically sailed to in 1916 to send word of his men marooned on Elephant Island.
About the Author

Graham Charles, Mark Jones and Marcus Waters together form Adventure Philosophy, one of the most successful expedition teams in the world. Their recent circumnavigation of South Georgia Island by kayak made maritime adventure history. The authors are world class climbers, kayakers, mountaineers, photographers and storytellers. As a team they've completed three world-first expeditions in a millennium where little of the planet is left unclaimed.
