The idea of being on a deserted tropical island is one of the most common fantasies. In Unforgettable Islands to Escape to Before You Die , intrepid world travelers Steve Davey and Marc Schlossman remind us that islands are as varied in their nature as they are in their location. The 40 islands featured in this lavish book and captured in 300 gorgeous photographs are in all corners of the world. Of the hundreds of islands the authors have visited, these are the most beautiful and captivating.

To help readers find their personal paradise, the book offers destinations ranging from Hong Kong with its hustle and bustle, to the starkly beautiful Wrangell Island on Alaska's Inside Passage, to the tropical heaven of the Philippines' Taal Caldera. Madagascar, Vanuatu, Socrota and Easter Island are among the other treasures featured. Each is described over six pages of photographs and personalized text, with essential travel information provided - flights, accommodation, specialized tours and more. A separate section lists web addresses for each location.

For the adventurous traveler looking for new sights and dreaming of unforgettable experiences, this lush book is an inspirational guide to the most spectacular islands in the world.
