Islander: A Journey Around Our Archipelago

Winter Weekend 2017 , 

The British Isles are an archipelago made up of two large islands and 6,289 smaller ones. The nature writer meets all kinds of islanders, from nuns to puffins, from local legends to rare subspecies of vole, as he seeks to discover what it is like to live on a small island, and what it means to be an islander. Barkham’s books include Coastlines, Badgerlands and The Butterfly Isles. Introduced by Kitty Corrigan.
