The mouse over tooltip for five stars here on Goodreads reads it was amazing and seldom have I come across a book to fit the bill better I was blown away by this wonderful atlas of islands already during the foreword The imagery of the author at eight traveling the world by tracing a route with her finger in her atlas and her mother advising her to take the Panama canal that s the shortest route is powerful and very vivid She brought her fascination with maps atlases and islands in particular with her into adulthood Her descriptions insights and uniue views of them moved and fascinated me and I don t think I will ever look at an atlas the same way againThe foreword was as it should just an introduction to things to come Each island is presented with a few base facts a page of text often a historical account and then another page with a map The stories are carefully chosen and gives just enough to invoke imagination fascination thrill or possibly dread But that s not all Often the laconic facts are enough to get the mind spinning sometimes we re given a story of a village and society a hundred years ago or two hundred years ago but when eyes fall upon the short facts it says uninhabited or we learn of an island being abandoned or evacuated a long time ago and the same row states 4 residents and my mind reels Why Who are they What happened Here are islands with abandoned research stations islands where half of the newborns succumbed to the 8 day sickness in the late 1800 s islands with legends of buried treasures islands where ships cannot make port Where 120 million crabs reside and migrate to the sea at a given time of the year horrible penal colony sites Islands where a large number of the inhabitants are truly colorblind where shipwrecked has built colonies islands where cultures have blossomed and then vanished Easter Island Bear Island the island never found by Amelia Earhart And Antipodes Island where the discoverer in 1800 realized that he was almost exactly opposite Greenwich and therefore as far away from home as he could be while still on the planet And every route home was eually long Actually none of the 50 islands will leave you indifferentWonderful book and very highly recommendedDeception Island
