9780349117379: Adrift In Caledonia: Boat-Hitching for the Unenlightened
Críticas:

His gift of description is beautifully worked. He evokes the sea and landscape with deft economy, capturing people even more sharply in one or two pen-strokes ( Herald)

It beats all those tales of travel writers foot-slogging through exotic lands in search of profundity and enlightenment ( Independent on Sunday)

As travelogues go, Adrift in Caledonia, is a beautiful entertainment, better than Bryson, as shrewdly observant as Theroux ( The Scotsman)

He shows a deep understanding of the Scottish psyche and gives many interesting insights into our view of life ( The Sunday Herald)

Reseña del editor:

One clear morning in May, Nick Thorpe left his Edinburgh flat, ducked off the commuter route and hitched a ride aboard a little white canal boat, heading west towards the sea. It was the first mutinous step in a delightful boat-hopping odyssey that would take him 2500 miles through Scotland's canals, lochs and coastal waters, from the industrial Clyde to the scattered islands of Viking Shetland.

Writing with characteristic humour and candour, the award-winning author of EIGHT MEN AND A DUCK plots a curiously existential voyage, inspired by those who have left the warm hearth for the promise of a stretched horizon. Whether rowing a coracle with a chapter of monks, scanning for the elusive Nessie, hitting the rocks with Captain Calamity or clinging to the rigging of a tall ship, Thorpe weaves a narrative that is by turns funny and poignant - a nautical pilgrimage for any who have ever been tempted to try a new path just to see where it might take them.

Part travelogue, part memoir, ADRIFT IN CALEDONIA is a unique and affectionate portrait of a sea-fringed nation - and of the drifter's quest to belong.
