New York, NY (PRWEB) April 16, 2010
One Peace Books (http://www.onepeacebooks.com) announces the upcoming release of Island Story: A True Story of a Neverending Summer. Island Story (ISBN: 978-1-933548-02-7, Trade Paper, 256 pages, 78 color photos, 64 black and white photos, $16.95, Category: Travel) will be available wherever fine books are sold on May 15, 2010.
After returning from a trip around the world, best-selling author Ayumu Takahashi was up for another adventure--this time in his own backyard, the southern island of Okinawa, Japan. But this adventure proved to be one that would change his life.
Takahashi set out to build a self-sustaining island village, and Island Story is a photographic journal of his eight-year-long quest to create this new green living environment.
Resplendent with vibrant, lush, and breathtaking photographs, Island Story chronicles Takahashi's dream to build a paradise out of nothing. From enlisting the aid of friends to help make this dream a reality, to the incredible opposition along the way, Island Story is an extraordinary, inspiring tale about hope, dreams, and the power of the human spirit.
So much more than a typical travel book, Island Story is a true, photo-documented tale of how one man's dream became an actual self-sustaining village, which is now enjoyed by visitors and volunteers alike.
Best-selling author Ayumu Takahashi has authored fourteen books which have sold over 1.4 million copies. He is the president of three of his own companies, and regularly volunteers in impoverished nations around the world. Takahashi is presently on his second open-ended journey around the world with his wife and two children.
A best-seller in Japan, Island Story will be released in the US on May 15.
