Customer Review

on 21 October 2010
I picked up just because I liked the look of it - beautifully and lovingly designed and produced. And I was entranced and bought a copy immediately - which my wife immediately purloined so I may need to buy another.

The author was new to me but the story behind the book is moving - born in East Germany and only able to conjure up a picture of the world outside from her parent's old atlas. And these are the islands that she read about - the islands and their denizens. Fascinating to read, just to dip into, or leaf through and let your own imagination wander. I actually don't want to spoil the surprise for readers so will say only that it would be a great present for both the experienced traveller and those who never leave the comfort of their armchair (and those who simply like beautiful books).

I do very strongly recommend it.

PS If you are in doubt - read the entry on St Kilda!!
