The Last Place on Earth: With Mike Fay’s African Megatransect Journals (v. 1&2)
Determined to document the vanishing riches of central Africa’s last undeveloped reaches, National Geographic photographer Michael “Nick” Nichols set out with ecologist Mike Fay on the “megatransect expedition,” a grueling 456-day, 2,000-mile trek from Congo’s deepest forest to Gabon’s virgin shore. The result of their efforts is The Last Place on Earth, revealing a landmark work so startling that it caused the government of Gabon to set aside 11 percent of the country’s interior rain forest as national parkland, creating 13 new national parks to protect virgin lands and wildlife.
Some of Nick’s books are also available on Amazon, like Gorilla.
