Island Story: A True Story of a Never-Ending Summer (Paperback)
After returning from a two-year trip around the world, chronicled in Love & Free, Ayumu Takahashi was ready for another adventure. This time it would happen right in his own backyard, the southern islands of Okinawa, Japan. Here he suddenly came up with an idea that would change his life. He would build a self-sustaining island village, a place where all are welcome to stay and enjoy the beautiful tropical surroundings. But building such a place turned out to be no easy task. Combating opposition with a lot of hard work, Ayumu and his companions overcame all kinds of obstacles to create their little piece of paradise. Island Story is a photographic record of his eight-year-long quest to create a new green living environment.
