You can always rely on Vertebrate Publishing to create lavishly-illustrated, beautifully designed, informative books – and Lisa Drewe’s England & Wales Island Bagging is no exception.
For anyone like me, who has a fascination with islands, this deliciously comprehensive tome is a must-have. As the author’s profile confirms, Drewe is a “self-confessed islomaniac” having explored nearly 500 British islands during the last decade. Her obsession with islands explains why this book is so thorough and should grace everyone’s bookshelf.
This informative guide spotlights almost 300 islands around the English and Welsh coastline. Everything from large, heavily populated isles to uninhabited tiny specks of rocks is included. In fact, anything you’d ever want to know about the islands scattered around our shores is included in this special book.
England & Wales Island Bagging by Lisa Drewe is published by Vertebrate Publishing, price £20.
