The British Isles are an Archipelago made up of two large islands and some 6289 smaller ones. While some islands, such as the Isle of Man, are almost 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 obcerved book Patrick Barkham journeys to some of the most beautiful landscapes in Britain as he explorers ever smaller islands, meets residents from nuns to voles, and seeks to discover what it means to be an islander.
