A fascinating story of the author's adventure in a boat all around the western coasts of the British Isles. This adventure started when he decided to leave his life in a cozy home in Sussex and go for the sea adventure. He has a 42-foot wooden ketch, the Auk, and was accompanied by a friend of him who knew a bit about sailing.

Adam Nicolson - the author of this interesting title - sailed off Cornwall to Scilly and then t western coast of Ireland prior to heading to the Orkney Islands and finally Faroe Islands. Note, however, that the present volume shall not be treated as just a travel journal. The author has written about his yearnings for the sea and open spaces.

There is an excellent and interesting dialogue running all through the content of this book with the author being between the various attractions of home/not home together with the certainties of what one knows and seductions of he or she does not. The publication is filled with the rich experience of the author presented in a very poetic and reflective manner.

This is a story telling readers about the marvels of the Atlantic coast and depicting the portrait of a man who has determined to check what it is all for, being somewhere in the middle of his life. Exceptionally well written book which is quite personal but still panoramic. Highly recommended to all sea lovers.
