A personal and fascinating study of the minutiae of life across several of the less-known islands around Britain. The British can call themselves a proud island race, but so can the residents of Sealand, whose population is less than 10.

Ben Fogle is perhaps best known for his role as a television presenter of One Man and His Dog, Animal Park, and Wild In Africa, but he is also an accomplished writer.

Fogle has put together a book that is informative and touching, while being very accessible.

Offshore tells the story of the author's quest to find an island of his very own, and the characters he meets along the way.
