Adventures On Small Islands

RRP $27.50

"Adventures on Small Islands: A Fresh Look at Greece" was intended as both and adventure story undertaken by two "old" ladies, and a story about a way of life that is vanishing, as these ten small Greek islands get caught up in the march of "progress" and thus lose the vary quality that once made them unique. The trips were undertaken over a six-year period and involved travelling "rough" - i.e. with just a rucksack; no mode of travel other than hiking, hitch-hiking, or an occasional bus; staying in village homes and trying to get to know as many loval people as possible in the weeks spent living on these islands. The islands were chosen because they are small and because neither Rhea nor Haris had previously visited them, thus no memories from the past would impinge on the "fresh look." They are not the big tourist islands that have changed Greek life in a way that many people do not like. Unfortunately, even these small islands are in the process of being "discovered" and are already changing in the past few years. So this adventure story becomes part of past history. The text of the book is taken from Haris' diaries, many pages of notes every day, and the illustrations are Rhea's. We had a lot of good times and memorable experiences on these small Greek islands, and we hope people both enjoy reading about them and get a flavour of the lives lived there. And maybe even grab a rucksack and head off to Greece to visit them!

Treasure Island

Treasure Island is an adventure novel narrating a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold". Traditionally considered a coming-of-age story, Treasure Island is a tale noted for its atmosphere, characters and action, and also as a wry commentary on the ambiguity of morality -- unusual for children's literature. The influence of Treasure Island on popular perceptions of pirates is enormous, including such elements as treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen bearing parrots on their shoulders. - Summary by Kara and WikipediaGenre(s): Action & Adventure Fiction, Historical Fiction, Nautical & Marine Fiction
