Inhaltsangabe: Dave Walsh describes over 300 islands. The essential information for kayakers or anyone in a small boat is there: landings, camping, drinking water and tidal information. Any wildlife to be found is detailed and on the islands that are or have been inhabited there is a wealth of information on their history and archaeology. The stories are fascinating and often told with a wry humour that makes them very readable. The book is illustrated throughout with colour photographs and maps. The writing and photographs capture the very essence of the wild places described.
Über den Autor: David Walsh is a Dublin solicitor, where he lives in Ranelagh with his wife Sheila. He has four children Justin, Daire, Sarah and Orla. He was always a keen climber, with a wide general interest in outdoor pursuits, particularly birding, river canoeing, and some scuba diving. On a sailing and climbing trip to Spitzbergen in 1990, he saw four sea kayaks glide between icebergs in a remote frozen fiord. He knew he just had to have a piece of the action, and the activity has consumed his life since then. David began exploring and documenting Ireland's islands in 1991 and has personally visited almost 300 of those in the text. He is a founder member of the Irish Sea Kayaking Association and held the position of Chairman from 1995 to 2003.
