On Celtic Tides: One Man's Journey Around Ireland by Sea Kayak

On Celtic Tides: One Man's Journey Around Ireland by Sea Kayak Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A sea kayak battles the freezing Irish waters as the morning sun rises out of the countryside. On the western horizon is the pinnacle of Skellig Michael-700 feet of vertical rock rising out of exploding seas. Somewhere on the isolated island are sixth-century monastic ruins where the light of civilization was kept burning during the Dark Ages by early Christian Irish monks. Puffins surface a few yards from the boat, as hundreds of gannets wheel overhead on six foot wing spans. The ocean rises violently and tosses paddler and boat as if they were discarded flotsam. This is just one day of Chris Duff's incredible three month journey.

Synopsis:

The first person to take a solo sea kayak journey around the British Isles recounts the fascinating 1,200-mile, three-month adventure--a mission of geography, culture, and history as well as self-discovery. 16-page photo insert.

Synopsis:

Pete Fromm's fiction carries the immediacy, integrity, and the truth of experience, and explores the permutations of everyday human relationships. Through his stories, we come to consider the mystery in the lives even of those closest to us. Filled with respect and admiration for his characters as they draw hope and possibility from their day to day dilemmas, Night Swimming affirms Pete Fromm's reputation as one of the nation's foremost fiction writers.
