This is a book about abandoned places: ghost towns and exclusion zones, no man's lands and fortress islands - and what happens when humans leave and nature is allowed to reclaim its place. 

Cal Flyn explores irradiated Chernobyl and uninhabited Scottish islands, volcanic regions of the Caribbean and the lush forest of Tanzanian mountains. By turns haunted and hopeful, Islands of Abandonment asks what happens after we're gone, and how far our damage to nature can be undone.
