Gavin Francis is a wonderful writer – thoughtful, engaging, immensely knowledgeable and supremely human
— Bill Bryson
Award-winning author and practicing GP Gavin Francis examines our collective fascination with islands. Beautifully illustrated with maps throughout, Island Dreams blends Gavin’s own travels with great voyages from literature and culture in a remarkable study.
From the Antarctic to the Faroe Islands, via the Aegean Sea and the Andaman Islands, this is a great celebration of human community and adventure.
