Patrick Barkham, Author & Natural History Writer

The British Isles are an archipelago made up of two large islands and 6,289 smaller ones. In Islander Patrick Barkham explores some of the most beautiful landscapes in the British Isles as he travels to ever-smaller islands in search of their special magic. Meeting all kinds of islanders, from nuns to puffins, from local legends to rare subspecies of vole, he seeks to discover what it is like to live on a small island, and what it means to be an islander.
