'The oceans of the world are filled with places seen once and then never again; places born in myth and in mystery. They have existed in every part of the world, and some have appeared on maps for many centuries before finally being erased ...These islands are human in origin, the products of imagination and error. They are phantoms, fakes and legends: an archipelago of ex-isles and forgotten lands.' Un-Discovered Islands marks an exciting new excursion into the beautiful, mysterious and mythical by the critically acclaimed author of travel writing memoir, Sixty Degrees North.
