Mike Cawthorne at Hexham Book Festival
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. WE HOPE TO SEE YOU AT FUTURE EVENTS.
In Walking Through Shadows Mike Cawthorne describes a winter trek across ‘The Rough Bounds’ in memory of his friend, Clive Dennier, a popular Inverness journalist, who died on the Knoydart Peninsula in March 2013 but whose body wasn’t found until weeks later. As well as a travelogue about a rugged, freezing journey across some of the wildest and most remote places in Britain, this is also a meditation on themes of grief, chance, mental illness and the healing power of the mountains. It’s a tale of extreme adventure that grapples with issues of vital importance to us all.
