Product Details


“Lively… The Island That Disappeared belongs to the higher class of clever scrapbook, bolstered with the best sources and very fluent storytelling.”THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
“A spirited narrative bursting with eccentric characters… A tumultuous history briskly told.”KIRKUS REVIEWS

“Feiling expertly draws on his journalism and documentary filmmaking background to create an intricately woven narrative that captivates the reader… a highly informative, perception-altering, and richly entertaining story.”BOOKLIST

“[The Island That Disappeared] holds appeal for readers interested in both Caribbean history and an alternative view of New World settlement.”LIBRARY JOURNAL 

“Tom Feiling engagingly brings the past to life here – his Puritans and pirates are real people, and he interacts easily and unobtrusively with modern islanders and castaways, ferreting out local lore in myriad forms. He has given this tiny anglophone island a clear history, at a time when it might just return to centre stage.”—Andrew Lambert, Times Literary Supplement

“A fascinating story with an extraordinarily exotic cast of characters.” —Andrew Marr, author of The Real Elizabeth

“A hidden history, a forgotten island, an engaging author . . . nothing could be finer.” —Dr Sam Willis, author of The Struggle for Seapower
