El Fuego Dentro 
Discubriendo la tierra donde los caballos salvajes vuelan con el viento

El 3 de marzo de 2019, Marcell Claassen terminó una travesía a pie de 460 km y 60 días desde Ushuaia a lo largo de la costa sur, este y noroeste de Tierra del Fuego, de la cual al menos 300 km forman parte de la Península Mitre, una de las zonas más aisladas e inhóspitas de la Argentina. Con una mochila que pesaba en promedio 35 kg, Marcell recorrió la costa escarpada y traicionera que ha sido responsable de muchísimos naufragios al largo de la historia de la exploración y navegación en el Atlántico Sur. Es parte de esta costa y su clima duro, acantilados imponentes y escarpados coronados por bosques enmarañados y azotados por el viento, lo que le obligó a hacer dos desviaciones tierra adentro por valles, ríos y arroyos con una mezcla de pastos altos de pantano, laderas de montañas con bosques densos y inmensas turberas. El libro no es sólo un diario de expedición, sino que proporciona una perspectiva de las rutas, distancias, equipo y provisiones, listas de fauna para expediciones en el futuro. Ilustrado por más de 140 fotos y 40 mapas, es un relato completo de la expedición y una obra de referencia, la primera de su tipo para la Península Mitre.

The Fire Inside 
Discovering the land where wild horses fly with the wind

On 3 March 2019, Marcell Claassen completed a 460km, 60-day trek on foot from Ushuaia along the southern, eastern and north-western coast of Tierra del Fuego of which at least 300km is part of Peninsula Mitre, one of the most isolated and inhospitable areas of Argentina.
With a backpack weighing on average 35kg, Marcell trekked the rugged and treacherous coastline that has been responsible for very many shipwrecks through the history of exploration and sailing in the South Atlantic. It's part of this coastline and its harsh weather, imposing sheer cliffs topped with wind-skewed and tangled forest, that forced him to make two diversions inland along valleys, rivers and streams with a mix of tall marsh grass, densely forested mountain slopes and vast waterlogged bogs.
The book is not only an expedition diary, it provides insight into the routes, distances, equipment and provisions, wildlife lists for future expeditions. Illustrated by over 140 photos and 40 maps, it's a comprehensive expedition account and reference work, the first of its kind for Peninsula Mitre.
