Britain''s big strength is that it is an island nation. However, we often forget that it boasts hundreds of smaller islands off its shores, each with a distinct character of its own. This book concentrates on the islands of England and Wales showing a mixture of contemporary photographs and archive material to capture the unique atmosphere of each island. Highlights include Steep Holm--a wonderfully preserved World War 2 time warp in the Bristol Channel; Flat Holm--a Welsh island with a cholera hospital and amazing fortifications; Lundy--a pirate haven that issues its own stamps; and Scillies--Britain''s own Hawaii. Also included are St Michael''s Mount--a tidal survivor of the mythical lost land of Lyonesse, with a working railway; Looe Island--subject of the book We Bought an Island; and Burgh island--a tidal with the world''s only sea tractor and a fantastic art deco hotel with Agatha Christie connections.
