Product description


A sea Kayak battles the freezing Irish waters as the morning sun rises out of the countryside. On the horizon is the pinnacle of Skelling Michael, rising out of exploding seas. Somewhere on that isolated Island are 6th - century monastic ruins where the light of civilization was kept burning during the dark ages. The ocean rises violently and tosses paddler and boat as if they were discarded flotsam. This is only one day out of Chris Duff's incredible three-month journey. ON CELTIC TIDES is a memoir unlike any other. Filled with vivid insight into the geography, culture and history of Ireland it transports you to a country rich in heritage. Take a white-knuckle ride with author Chris Duff as he braves the furious Irish seas, and examines his own soul in a quest for self-discovery.

About the Author

Chris Duff has traveled over 14,000 miles by sea kayak since 1983 when he paddled 8,000 miles around the eastern third of the United States and Canada. In 1986 he became the first person to solo the entire British Isles and is currently planning a solo circumnavigation of New Zealand's south island. Chris is a contributing author to the book Seekers of the Horizon and has written for Sea Kayaker magazine and the International Sea Kayaking Association. He lectures across the country and lives in Port Angeles, Washington.
