Summary A non-fiction picture book about the life and times of Macquarie Island, a sub-Antarctic Island and World Heritage Site. This book traces the history of the island and the story of how its precious ecosystem has been damaged over the years and how recently attempts have been made to regenerate and restore it to its former pristine state. It's a story of hope and renewal, and Macquarie Island's plight is a microcosm of the environmental issues facing us today
