Summary
The Un-Discovered Islands is an exploration of some of the world's strangest places. Gathered in the book are two dozen islands once believed to be real but no longer on the map. These are the products of imagination, deception and simple human error. They are phantoms and fakes: an archipelago of ex-isles and forgotten lands. These are stories of legend and wonder, of places discovered and then un-discovered, from the well-known story of Atlantis to more obscure tales from around the globe; from ancient history right up to the present day
