The Adventurer Package

The joy of reading is that it can can take us anywhere. Here, we follow the adventures of these authors across the globe.

Rowing After the White Whale by James Adair

Taking inspiration from Herman Melville’s classic Moby Dick, this hilarious and heart-warming book tells the story of two friends who decided to do something no one thought they could.

Wild Voices by Mike Cawthorne

The journeys in this book are tales of adventure on foot and by canoe through some of the last wild places in Scotland. Each journey is haunted by the ghost of another writer – Neil Gunn, Iain Thomson, Rowena Farre – who has left behind the trace of his or her own experience of these isolated hills, glens, streams or lochs.

Walking the Border by Ian Crofton

In this book Ian Crofton makes a journey on foot from Gretna Green in the southwest to Berwick in the northeast, following as close as possible the Anglo-Scottish Border as it has been fixed since the union of the crowns in 1603. Much of the line of the Border runs through a wild, overwhelmingly unvisited no man’s land – the sort of trackless waste perfect for keeping two belligerent peoples apart?
