Britain is an archipelago made up of two large islands and 6,289 smaller ones. Some, like the Isle of Man, resemble miniature nations, with their own language and tax laws; others are haunted by myths, ghosts or foxes.
Embarking on an island odyssey from biggest to tiniest, Patrick Barkham will take you to places where the past is unusually present, but a vision of an alternative future can often be found. Patrick’s previous books include The Butterfly Isles and Badgerlands. He writes for The Guardian.
