Nancy H | 811 comments 18. The Marshall Islands - Paradise Lost: A year on a vanishing island with the exiled Bikinians in the Marshall Islands by Alan A. Taylor (3/16/18) - This is a look at a unique area of the world, and one that is under threat of having some of the islands disappearing due to climate change. It is a shame that not much attention is given from the rest of the world to this area and the plight of its people.
