5.0 out of 5 stars Sixty Islands to Discover, 19 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Tiny Islands: 60 Remarkable Little Worlds Around Britain (Paperback)
Dixe Wills writes books about the outdoors and is a contributor to the Guardian newspaper, writing mainly about eco-friendly and no frills travel, typically around Britain.
There are hundreds of islands in and around Britain, apparently, so before researching and writing this book, the author came up with his own criteria for choosing the 60 tiny islands featured in this book. Each island is given a few pages - and includes a map, stunning photos, points of interest, the history of it, plus a full page of information on how to get there and what to do etc.
This book has various uses. It's a great reference book for anyone wishing to visit the islands, and if I was on holiday near to where any of these islands are situated - I would use this guide to arrange a trip.
The book is also just pleasant to read and an ideal coffee table/ bedside table book.
The islands sound fascinating - I enjoyed dipping in and out of the pages and reading about each unique island. I very nearly made a list of all the ones that I'd like to visit, but quickly realised that I would like to visit all of them! Some of the Islands inspired authors and I made a note of a couple of books that I would like to read.
This book would also make a lovely gift for anyone who likes an adventure on their travels.
