Thomas  Käsbohrer - The Forgotten Islands


Sailing through world history

Thomas Käsbohrer feels most comfortable where there is only the sky, wind and water. He spends nine months a year on his sailing ship facing the inhospitality of the seas. For The Forgotten Islands he journeyed through the Mediterranean, making for large islands like Sicily and almost forgotten ones such as Palagruzza. On each of the islands he discovered a story that points far beyond the place and shows why our world has become what it is.

Käsbohrer tells us of the adventure of being alone on the sea, of his longing for wide horizons we all have within us, and condenses his trip to become a history of the world that has never been told this way before.

"Käsbohrer tells this story in a wonderful and entertaining way […] The present and past history are fascinatingly conjoined."
