    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. It's the story of paradise lost and found, and the life and times of one small island in relation to the whole planet. Drawing on historical journals and maps, and various other pieces of information text, the picture book intersperses Alison Lester's beautiful landscape paintings of the island with Coral Tulloch's detailed maps and journal entries, recording people's voices through time. The island's story is told in text running across the bottom of the page, linking the information text with a lyrical account of the island's history throughout.
