An environmentalist and geophysicist, Louise Young describes the unique history and personality of each island -- its birth and evolution, geological makeup, flora and fauna, and human inhabitants.From the volcanic origins of Sri Lankas spectacular jewel mines and the remarkable plant and animal life of Madagascar to the mysterious statues on Easter Island and the earth-splitting geology of Iceland, Islands takes readers on a breathtaking journey to some of the smallest -- yet most impressive -- places on the planet.The stories behind these miniature worlds are as varied as their exotic landscapes -- some are tragic, others are hopeful, but they all reveal important messages about preserving ecological balance and the consequences of how we exploit or nurture the larger island of Earth itself.
