"This remarkable book is above everything else a study of Douglas, and as such it is not only able and fascinating, but strangely timely. ... A picture humanly attractive and far reachingly instructive." -- Edwin Bjorkman in The New York Herald
When Chris Seabranch is not on a treasure hunt, fleeing from aliens or conjuring up interesting scientific articles as a Danish science journalist, he likes to write fantasy books. Butterfly Islands is a great example of his storytelling skills, and was conceived during a 175 kilometer walk around Mount Blanc in France. As our Author of The Day, Seabranch chats about female pirates, 15 year olds and butterflies.
