Description:
Britain is an archipelago made up of two large islands and 6,289 smaller ones. Some, like the Isle of Man, resemble miniature nations, with their own language and tax laws; others, like Ray Island in Essex, are abandoned and mysterious places haunted by myths, ghosts and foxes. In this evocative and vividly observed book, Patrick Barkham explores some of the most beautiful landscapes in Britain as he travels to ever-smaller islands in search of their special magic.

Reviews
Beware- this book could turn you into a nesomane! It is populated by people who loved; were lured by, and lived on islands, who are themselves characters as discrete as the humans. A very good read.
