AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'For most people, islands are optional - places to dream about, the ideal site for holidays or honeymoons, times when you want to put a watery distance between yourself and a busy, vexatious reality.... My book is about the fantasies of runaways, beachcombers and children who refuse to grow up.' - Peter Conrad, from the Introduction
