Places not on Google Maps – The Reindeer Islands

Extracts from the following book – Places not on Google Maps

This island group is part of the Aleutian chain and comprises: Velvett, Antla, Unantla, Forn, and Doh islands. This group of islands was discovered by Russian navigators in the 1760s who found many reindeer skeletons on the island of Doh. It’s thought they were the reindeer who became a little homesick as they travelled across the Aleutian land bridge and wanted to return, but were unable to because the ocean had cut off their escape.
