The Selvagens were colonized byMoreBetween the Canary and Madeira Islands, we find the tiny, barren and uninhabited Selvagens. Far from the tourist crowds, these volcanic outcrops house fantastic seabird colonies and unique species of flora and fauna.

The Selvagens were colonized by Portugal in 1438. Being virtually destitute of water, they have only had temporary inhabitants like fishermen, bird hunters and scientists. Many stories have been told about buried pirate treasures- we do not know whether those treasures ever existed but this book reveals some spectacular stories of genuine treasure hunts.

Born in 1963, the author is a non-fiction author about islands and maritime history. His website is www.aworldofislands.com.
