36 Islands : In Search of the Hidden Wonders of the Lake District and a Few Other Things Too, Hardback Book

36 Islands : In Search of the Hidden Wonders of the Lake District and a Few Other Things Too Hardback

Hardback

Description

Robert Twigger, poet, artist and travel author, is a lover of uninhabited islands.

A lifelong passion for the Lake District led him to embark on a mission to visit all 36 islands of the region - some little more than rocks, some home only to wildlife, some the perfect spot for a night of wild-camping.

Armed only with an inflatable canoe, and inspired by Arthur Ransome, Wainwright, Wordsworth and other writers of the region he journeys beyond the tourists and the busy roads, beneath the surface, to islands both real and remembered, where the low tide of the unconscious reveals itself through the strange flotsam that it leaves on the shore - a new sense of discovery, about himself and the world we live in.
