Countless islands dot our earth but only a few are famous. Touched by history and fate, many figure largely in the lives of humans. And some are the last and only refuge for many unique animals. Indonesia consists of 17,110 islands. Six thousand have names; 922 are permanently inhabited; two have an amazing history: Komodo, the island home of the Komodo dragon, the largest lizard on earth, and remote Lembata, home to daring sea hunters whose sacred boats have not changed in 700 years.

On the Galapagos Islands, that "little world in itself," Charles Darwin conceived the theory of evolution that would change our vision of the world. On tiny Attu Island in the Aleutians, Americans and Japanese fought one of the most prolonged and bloody battles of World War II. And Santorini, the centre of great culture 4,000 years ago, may have been Plato's marvelous kingdom of Atlantis.

Of the many islands Bruemmer has visited over his lifetime, he selected 25 whose history and fate are disparate and fascinating. On some of these he lived for weeks and months. Each island is accompanied by photographs and a map.
