This book accompanies the TV documentary series Britain’s Treasure Islands, broadcast on the BBC and across the world.

The UK Overseas Territories are Britain’s most remote outposts. Scattered across all Seven Seas, the territories cover an area seven times the size of the United Kingdom. They are home to 350,000 British subjects and thousands of unique animals and plants, including many of the greatest wildlife spectacles on Earth…

Join explorer and naturalist Stewart McPherson on his intrepid three year journey across all of the United Kingdom’s overseas lands. Journeying on RAF flights, one of the last working Royal Mail ships, freight vessels, ice breakers and charter yachts, Stewart set out to discover the unique wildlife, history and cultures of the territories—the true treasure of these little-known outposts of the United Kingdom.

Travel through tropical rainforests, exploding volcanoes, arid deserts, coral reefs and icy polar wastes to discover the thousands of unique species which call the Overseas Territories home, and learn the fascinating roles that each territory played in defining modern British and world history.

Complimented by over one thousand spectacular, full-colour images, including dozens of full-page and double-page spreads, a special feature of this book is its 17 specially-commissioned gatefold maps that showcase the geography of each territory.

No previous book has ever explored the subject in comparable detail. This visually spectacular work is both a fact-filled reference volume and a riveting account of Stewart’s adventurous and exciting journey. The resulting 704 pages will transfix all audiences, and resonate particularly with all those interested in natural history, travel, exotic places, culture, geography, as well as British and world history.

Signed copies bear the signature of the author, Stewart McPherson.
