How to Cross the Atlantic Ocean by Kayak?”) by Agata Loth-Ignaciuk and Bartłomiej Ignaciuk has recently been published in Ukraine.

The book Doba on the Ocean. How to Cross the Atlantic Ocean by Kayak? is a fascinating story about expeditions across the Atlantic carried out by Aleksander Doba, a Polish kayaker, who was the first man in history to cross the ocean by kayak, from one continent to another. You can learn how to plan a transatlantic kayak expedition, find out if an ocean kayak is made of rubber, and how to fit sailing gear, a small repair yard, and food for several months on it. Doba on the Ocean. How to Cross the Atlantic Ocean by Kayak? illustrates an extraordinary expedition and provides a wealth of information about the Atlantic Ocean.
The publication was created in cooperation with Aleksander Doba and is the first book about his kayak expeditions for children.
Another book by Agata Loth-Ignaciuk and Bartłomiej Ignaciuk was awarded the prestigious Bologna Ragazzi Award in the non-fiction category last year.
In 2017, the Book Institute also supported another translation by Oleksandr Herasym - Na nieludzkiej ziemi ("The Inhuman Land") by Józef Czapski - as part of the ©Poland Translation Programme.
