Outposts of adventure
On April 6, 2019 In Travel books
Outpost by Dan Richards (Canongate), which considers “the romantic, exploratory appeal of cabins and isolated stations” everywhere from the Cairngorms to Mount Mitoku in Japan, by way of the Utah desert, is reviewed today in The Guardian.
The author has also written a piece for Telegraph Travel, focusing on his stay at the fire lookout tower in Washington state where Jack Kerouac once wrestled with solitude. You can read an extract from the book on the Caught by the River website.
