Some Lovely Islands

£4.99

Product description

"One spring Leslie Thomas took time off from writing novels and began a journey to the small islands around Britain and Ireland. First published in 1968, Some Lovely Islands is a richly evocative account, alive with stories of sea and storms, happy with humour and humanity. The book has since been completely redesigned, the text revised and updated to include additional islands, and Peter Cheze-Brown has embellished it with his outstanding photographs. The combination makes for an enchanting, lively and highly personal account of some of the loneliest parts of Britain and Ireland."

Book in very good condition, although there is an inscription on the first page.
