The Ark of the Kerguelen

Today I will talk about my latest reading, « The Ark of the Kerguelen » written by Jean-Pierre Kauffmann in 1993. In this travelogue the author recounts his journey in the Kerguelen Islands with soldiers. His main activities are to visit this very remote archipelago of the France. Through this journey, the author travels to various locations on the islands. He tells the history of these places and gives us interesting anecdotes on these isolated lands and ignored by many people. I recommend this book for those who want to improve their knowledges in geography. This story has for main theme, the loneliness which is very present on the Kerguelen.
