Britain’s Distant Lands showcases and celebrates the astounding diversity of animals, plants, landscapes, cultures and history of the UK Overseas Territories.
The sixteen UK Overseas Territories are scattered across all seven seas, from the Equator to the South Pole. They harbour lush tropical rainforest, pristine coral reefs and Antarctic tundra, as well as some of the world’s largest penguin, albatross and sea turtle populations. More than one thousand unique plant and animal species call the UK Overseas Territories home, as do 270,000 British subjects united by a proud cultural heritage and many unique stories.
Through breath-taking imagery and concise text, each page of this work has been passionately crafted to take the reader on a journey across the Territories to explore the key wildlife and histories that have made these fascinating British outposts what they are today.
Each of the 16 main chapters of this work explores a different UK Overseas Territory and includes a detailed, full-page, custom-drawn map.
With contributions from hundreds of residents and conservationists from across the UK Overseas Territories, Britain’s Distant Lands is filled with captivating photographs and interesting facts, and is both a spectacular coffee table photo book and a concise reference volume!
