Synopsis: Everyone dreams of living on an island, perhaps for just a few days, or a month, a year or even forever... Islands fascinate us and fill us with wonder. Even just thinking about an island can give people pleasure. Roberto Rossellini and Ingrid Bergman loved Stromboli. Spielberg took Indiana Jones to the jungles of Sri Lanka. Jacques Brel sang the beauty of the Marquesas Islands. Princess Margaret found peace and tranquillity in Mustique. Marlon Brando and Paul-Emile Victor made their homes in Polynesia. Richard Branson and other modern-day adventurers have actually bought the islands of their dreams, renting them out or transforming them into island-hotels. Tiny islets or vast expanses, famous or secret, lush and tropical or bare and windswept, they all attract the traveler. This is a book for dreamers, for travelers, and for anyone who wants to learn about the history of these islands and open their minds to adventure, tropical sun, jungles, lagoons, forgotten creeks and fabulous hotels.
