Islands Beynd the Horizon; The life of twenty of the world's most remote places
Islands have an irresistible attraction and an enduring appeal. Naturalist Roger Lovegrove has visited many. In this book he takes the reader to twenty that fascinate him the most. The range is diverse and spectacular; and whether distant, offshore, inhabited, uninhabited, tropical or polar, each is a unique self-contained habitat with a delicately-balanced ecosystem, and each has its own mystique and ineffable magnetism. Central to each story is also the impact of human settlers.
