Updated edition of this guide to St Cuthbert's Way that brings the landscape to life through a wealth of stories and personalities. Includes a look at early Celtic and Anglo-Saxon spirituality, the more recent history of the Borderlands and the flora and fauna to look out for along the route.
Witty and reflective poems of faith and doubt, ranging from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in the Garden of Eden to the events of the first Easter, taking in on the way Julian of Norwich's hazelnut, Mastermind, God as a blizzard, and the eighth deadly sin.
These haiku-like poems arise out of Kenneth Steven's perception of the Iona landscape. They have the sense of wonder, seeing, and being in the moment that many of us experience when spending time on this jewel-like island in a turquoise sea.
