FRAYED ATLANTIC EDGE, THE

Synopsis

Over the course of a year, historian and nature writer David Gange kayaked the weather-ravaged coasts of Atlantic Britain and Ireland from north to south. The story of his journey reveals how the similar ingredients of wind, rock and ocean have been transformed into wildly different Atlantic cultures. Drawing on the archives of islands and coastal towns, he shows that the histories of these stunning regions are of real importance in reconceptualising both the past and the future of the whole archipelago.
