New York, NY (PRWEB) November 9, 2010
New York based independent publisher One Peace Books believes in the power of books. According to Robert McGuire, Marketing Director at One Peace Books, "Books can be so much more than purely educational or entertaining; books have the power to introduce readers to new concepts and ideas, and transport readers to faraway places."
A fast-growing independent press dedicated to producing books for a global readership, One Peace Books, in celebration of a new book release, Island Story: The True Story of a Neverending Summer, decided to honor the power of books by sponsoring an incredible sweepstakes giveaway that would literally transport a lucky reader to a faraway place.

Island Story chronicles best-selling author Ayumu Takahashi's eight year-long quest to create a new green living environment. Resplendent with vibrant, lush, and breathtaking photographs, Island Story, a Japanese best-seller, 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 how Ayumu and his companions created their little piece of paradise known as Beach Rock Village, one of the first Eco-friendly resorts in Japan.
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.
