Outpost: A Journey to the Wild Ends of the Earth by Dan Richards



ISBN: 9781786891570 Category: Tags: , ,


There are still wild places out there on our over-crowded planet. Through a series of personal journeys, Dan Richards explores their romantic and exploratory appeal. Wildernesses, seemingly untouched by man’s hand: mountains, tundra, forests, oceans, and deserts. Their wildness is part of their beauty. For those who go in search of the isolation, silence, and adventure of wild places it is – perhaps ironically – to the man-made shelters that they need to head; the outposts: bothies, bivouacs, cabins, and huts. Part of their allure is their simplicity. Following a route from the Cairngorms of Scotland to the fire-watching huts of Washington State, from Iceland’s Houses of Joy to the desert of New Mexico, and from the frozen beauty of Svalbard to a lighthouse perched in the Atlantic, Richards uncovers landscapes which have inspired writers, artists, and musicians.
