  • Ascension: The Story of a South Atlantic Island
    Ascension: The Story of a South… by Duff Hart-Davis

    The bleak, volcanic island of Ascension, 800 miles from its nearest neighbour St. Helena, was described by a Victorian naval officer as 'one of the strangest places on the face of the earth'. It is still exceedingly odd. Uninhabited when it was taken over by the British in 1815, it was an almost perfect natural vacuum – a triangular heap of lava and ash. When the Royal Marines brought in plants and animals, some flourished, others died. Tropical forest now clothes the peak of Green Mountain, and feral donkeys haunt the plains.
