Description
Some say the richest and wildest coastline in Europe is the Atlantic-battered western coast of the British Isles, from Land's End in Cornwall to Cape Clear on the southern tip of Ireland, past Roaringwater Bay and Cod's Head, on past Inishvickillane and Inishtooskert, up through the Hebrides, to Orkney and on to the Faeroes. Wanting to experience the feeling that only the ocean can give you of being "a single hair on the world's skin," Adam Nicolson set off to sail this 1500-mile odyssey in his wooden 42-foot ketch Auk. In a book that is much more than a travel journal, he describes an inner journey as much as an outer one.

"This thoughtful book ... is the poetic distillation of a journey.... Nicolson has made a spirited attempt to examine the price one pays, in human terms, for going instead of staying: the Faustian pact of the true traveler."Daily Telegraph (London)
