Join Leonie Charlton on a journey through the Hebrides as she travels on ponies with her friend Shuna from the southern tip of Barra to the ancient stone circle of Callanish. It’s a book which beautifully celebrates people and place; it’s both an outer and an inner journey as Leonie confronts her fractured relationship with her late mother.

Leonie writes poetry and fiction and was the joint winner of the Cinnamon Press Poetry Pamphlet Prize. She is “fascinated by human relationships, and love in its many forms. Much of (her) work is influenced by nature and our connection with the non-human world.”

She especially enjoys walking and time with horses as ways to feel into landscape, to explore whatever reveals itself through quiet attentive travel. She lives in Glen Lonan in Argyll and is a graduate of the MLitt in Creative Writing at the University of Stirling.

We are delighted to have Leonie as part of our Book Week Scotland 2022 programme.
