This is a fantastic book for anyone, whether you're a kayaker or not.
Brian Wilson appears to be a natural author - it was his first book. It reads fluidly and quite poeticly. It's a real page-turner.
He writes from the heart and very honestly. The book covers an amazing adventure, from the initial idea right through to the end. During his journey around the coast of Scotland he experiences intense highs and lows in the course of his adventure. Blissful moments through to depression and near-death!
The book also gives you interesting snap-shots of local folklore and history which is hard to find elsewhere. He gives his own thoughts on the environment and our treatment of it.More on canoeing in Scotland
