Mike Cawthorne at Hexham Book Festival
(THIS EVENT HAS NOW PASSED)
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.
