Islands of Abandonment: Life in the Post Human Landscape

Regular price £16.99

This is a book about abandoned places: ghost towns and exclusion zones, no man's lands and fortress islands - and what happens when nature is allowed to reclaim its place. It explores the extraordinary places where humans no longer live - or survive in tiny, precarious numbers - to give us a possible glimpse of what happens when mankind's impact on nature is forced to stop.

From Tanzanian mountains to the Caribbean, the forbidden areas of France to the mining regions of Scotland, Cal Flyn brings together some of the most desolate, eerie, ravaged and polluted areas of the world - and shows how, against all odds, they offer our best opportunities for our environmental recovery.
