About the Book
This book represents a personal journey into the Chernobyl of today, a land largely reclaimed by nature. It is a journey that takes us inside the exclusion zones right to the heart of the tragedy, the stricken reactor itself, barely contained by the crumbling, decaying sarcophagus which prevents it from unleashing its deadly contents for a second time.
