Details

Britain is comprised of two large islands and 6,289 smaller ones, including 132 that are permanently inhabited. Natural historian Patrick Barkham journeys through progressively smaller islands, including the prosperous Isle of Man, the mysterious islet of Ray, resurgent Eigg and the holy island of Bardsey. He encounters a mixture of islanders, including landlords, lacemakers, writers and nuns, and observes creatures such as puffins and rare voles, as he seeks to define our shared island mentality.
