Four decades of adventure, tribulations and successes are shared through the memories of the remarkable individuals that hunted feral cats and studied seals on remote Subantarctic Marion and other Southern Ocean islands.
"PAIN FORMS THE CHARACTER" delves to the heart and soul of what the life of a 'cat hunter' or 'sealer' on a remote cold, windswept island in the great Southern Ocean for a year or more is like. By interweaving factual background and the remarkable anecdotes from over 100 contributors, editors NICO DE BRUYN and CHRIS OOSTHUIZEN, provide entertaining context to the remarkable science and conservation achievements attained over >40 years on these starkly beautiful fringes of the world. This precious legacy continues to this day!
