Fifty-five islands, nineteen countries, seventeen thousand miles ... and one amazing adventure. A fascinating story of four sailors who discovered the magic of the South Pacific ... and the islands time forgot After recovery from a serious illness, Graham Morse vowed to achieve his dream of sailing across the South Pacific with his wife, Janet, and reliving the adventures of his boyhood heroes, Captain Cook, Thor Heyerdahl, and Christian Fletcher. They had expected to find some of the most beautiful islands in the world, and were not disappointed. But they were surprised to find a world where life has changed very little in two hundred years, and where the people have very different values than his own society, and however poor, take pleasure in giving. But sadly it is a world on the cusp of change. Travel with them as they discover the mysteries of ancient Polynesian culture, are welcomed into the homes of humble people, meet fascinating characters, are invited to village feasts, work with black pearl farmers, and swim with seals, sharks, and whales. The voyage --which took them across the world's largest ocean --was not without its dangers, incident, and tragedy. The Islands Time Forgot is not just for sailors who yearn to make such a voyage, but for all armchair travelers who have dreamed about the South Pacific that only a sailing boat can reach.

On 5 May 1725 a Dutch ship's officer, Leendert Hasenbosch, was set ashore on the desert island of Ascension in the South Atlantic Ocean, as a punishment for sodomy. He tried to survive on turtles and birds but found very little water on the barren island. He wrote a diary. He probably died after about half a year. In January 1726 British mariners found his tent, diary and other things and brought the diary to England. In 1726 a first English version of the diary of the Dutch castaway was published. Other versions followed in 1728, 1730 and 1976. Who was the castaway? The truth was disclosed by the Dutch historian Michiel Koolbergen (1953-2002), in a posthumously published book in Dutch. With the support of Michiel Koolbergen's family and publisher, this new book discloses the truth in English. This book is the second edition, with some improvements compared to the original edition of 2006. This book is illustrated with line drawings, both historic ones and by the Dutch artist Anneke de Vries.

Two WWI enemies must work together to survive on a lost island of dinosaurs and prehistoric tribes in this classic sci-fi fantasy novel. Shipwrecked by a German U-Boat, American soldier Bowen J. Tyler and the beautiful Lys La Rue are the only survivors. They join forces with a British tugboat crew and manage to survive by taking over the German sub. Now, operating an enemy ship, they are unable to find safe harbor. And with a saboteur aboard, they soon go wildly off course. Adrift in Antarctic waters, the half-starved passengers spot what appears to be their salvation: the lost island of Caprona. But once they pass through the island’s exterior cliffs, they encounter a host of dangers believed to be long extinct. In a tropical land full of dinosaurs and Neanderthal tribes, double crosses within their own ranks may yet be the worst threat of all. But when Lys goes missing, Bowen will risk his life—and his last chance to escape the island—to find her.

The tropical UK Territories have extensive coral reefs. Huge parts of these areas are exceptionally rich, productive and diverse. Their marine biodiversity exceeds that of the UK itself, and several are already, or are planned to be, strictly protected. Some of these areas serve as reference sites for many other countries with damaged reefs and they are oases of tropical marine biodiversity in a fast-degrading world. This book reviews all of the UK reefs, from those scarcely known to those where substantial research has already been performed. ​
