Summary :

Somewhere on Earth is off to discover Cape Verde: an archipelago of ten or so islands situated in the Atlantic Ocean, 600 km off the coast of Senegal. Ten little worlds, whose sole natural riches are their mountains and their deserts… lands of sand and stone… tormented by the winds and currents.

George lives on Sao Vicente, just across the water from a couple of uninhabited islands. They are a sanctuary, a last refuge for rare and endangered bird species. George and his brother are committed heart and soul to protecting these secret gardens.

Santa Antao is the “island mountain.” Theo knows the island’s every path and trail because he’s hiked them all. From the harsh mineral desert to the lush tropical vegetation, this island is a land of contrast.

Child of the wind and waves, Mitu is a kiteboarding Champion. The ocean is where he lives and plays. He grew up in Sal and his island has now become one of the world’s favorite spots for surfing sports.
