But there is another France located on islands scattered throughout the world where cultures have mingled and remarkable individuals have left indelible marks in the sand. Patti Marxsens essays on islands with French connections float between history and poetry as they wander, reflect, inform, and interpret. Islands occupy a special place in the modern psyche, she says, crediting the French, from Bougainville to Gauguin, with this modern fascination.

Her own fascination has resulted in a tour, and a tour de force, for those who remain undaunted by the Gallic shrug delivered to America in 2003. Whether read on the beach or at home with a glass of Bordeaux, the explorations contained in Island Journeys: Exploring the Legacy of France will transport the Francophile within to new ways of seeing one of the oldest nations in the world.
