A sea Kayak battles the freezing Irish waters as the morning sun rises out of the countryside. On the horizon is the pinnacle of Skelling Michael, rising out of exploding seas. Somewhere on that isolated Island are 6th - century monastic ruins where the light of civilization was kept burning during the dark ages. The ocean rises violently and tosses paddler and boat as if they were discarded flotsam. This is only one day out of Chris Duff's incredible three-month journey. ON CELTIC TIDES is a memoir unlike any other. Filled with vivid insight into the geography, culture and history of Ireland it transports you to a country rich in heritage. Take a white-knuckle ride with author Chris Duff as he braves the furious Irish seas, and examines his own soul in a quest for self-discovery.
