Boston, MA, May 17, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- New Word City llc announces the publication of The Invisible Islands, a new eBook by the bestselling author and award-winning travel writer Tony Perrottet.
India’s Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal may be the world’s least known archipelago, Perrottet writes. Access was banned for generations by the colonial British and, more recently, restricted by the Indian military after independence. Only in the last few years have travelers been permitted to visit a handful of the 550 tiny islands. Perrottet journeys to this lost world of stunning beaches and virgin jungles, populated by Stone Age tribes, Indian eco-warriors, and swimming elephants.
