Y sense from the mainland from people from airports and from holiday brochures Author Judith Schalansky used historic events and scientific reports as a springboard for each island providing information on its distance fro. It came in a box with another book and a CD delivered to my front porch and awaiting me Friday night At first look it seemed scant A large type introduction as if to exaggerate the number of pages Some maps of islands with brief written observations on the facing page I read a few Cute but I was already in the middle of a novel I was really enjoying and this could wait on a coffee table where maybe it would belongCame Saturday morning and the novel stood next to the Atlas My hand flexed like a divining rod and picked up the Atlas And I barely put it down again until I traveled around the worldFifty remote islands Mostly uninhabited One where people never walked One where until the 1990s fewer people had trod than on the moon Some where only bones remain Yet one has been inhabited for 3000 years the thousand residents following an extreme form of zero population growth Some can not yield vegetation One thanks to massive bird droppings is pure phosphate On another inbreeding has caused 10 per cent of the 250 inhabitants to be color blind and they prefer it so Children born on another island die within eight days One will sink into the ocean forever maybe next month maybe next year you can still go there if you are not a researcher or a missionary One was the stage for a notorious murder These islands gave an ephemeral glance of the Transit of Venus watched Amelia Earhart fly to her death and hosted the Bounty s mutiny On one six soldiers raised a flag There are songs and sex The New Zealand Department of Conservatism sends nine volunteers for six month stays on another island with no other inhabitants climbing skills and practical experience in maintaining buildings an advantage Address for applications included In this book you will find the ends of the earth and its navel Every island has a story Yes Atlas of Remote Islands is a slim volume but every sentence is perfect Fraulein Schalansky has been flawlessly translated This book will indeed have a home on my coffee table not because it is voluptuous but because I will re read it often and will want it handyI will not read a cooler book this yearOne thing about the Atlas befuddles me though It is subtitled Fifty Islands I Have Never Set Foot On and Never Will What How can you write a book like this and not want to go there Never ReallyMemo to self I know what you re thinking You want to go to all 50 islands before you die You can t Some are physically impossible Some would be too expensive And anyhow you don t have enough time left But you should go to at least one of them before you die And recommend just such a trip to those on your friend list who like to travel and prefer an adventure Pukapuka is in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and has 600 inhabitants Surely one of them would have a cold beer for an old pilgrimMemo to others The CD that came in the box was Sigh No More by Mumford Sons It proved coincidentally to be the perfect soundtrack for reading this book
