Lige fra sneglen til hunden til dinosauren. Men Arken springer læk midt ude på havet, og hvad skal Noa dog gøre?

A widely appealing story with a Celtic Christian element at its heart
It was by coracle that the early Celts made journeys on the sea roads of their time. A coracle is a tiny vessel, yet it is sufficient to carry one soul on a whole voyage. This collection of poems is about voyages, both real and figurative; journeys of many kinds. It is about facing danger and doubt with faith - against all the odds.
Kenneth Steven's poems are inspired first and foremost by wildscape, by the places and people of Highland Perthshire and of the Celtic west - Iona and the Hebrides. But they are inspired by faith too, by the struggle to see God in the complexities of this world's turmoil and find light in the darkness.
In Island, Kenneth Steven has chosen over 100 poems, including some of his best and most loved poems along with a selection of new work.
