Scoresby Sund - Discovering North-East Greenland

New publication by Peter Schmidt Mikkelsen

SCORESBY SUND is the fourth book in the series: "Discovering North-East Greenland".

In this book, the journey of discovery goes to the area that borders the large North-East Greenland National Park in the south. In addition to a rich fauna, the Scoresby Sund area also contains some of the most magnificent nature in North-East Greenland, indeed in all of Greenland. And then the Scoresby Sund fjord is actually the world's longest fjord, approximately 350 km long! Here in this unique natural area is also the small Greenlandic town of Ittoqqortoormiit, which with its approximately 350 inhabitants is the northernmost town on Greenland's east coast.

SCORESBY SUND gives, in pictures and words, a broad impression of the entire Scoresby Sund region and its history. The book has 172 pages and, like its three predecessors, is beautifully bound and packed with more than 250 photos. The texts are in parallel Danish/English.

Pages: 172 pages. Format: 255 x 300 x 20 mm. Paper: 170 g. Hardback with dust jacket. Languages: Danish / English. More than 250 photos and illustrations. Publish date: 1st June 2023.
