Otherness; Forty Five Days on the Isle of Beauty
by David Wise
During the summer of 2012 David spent 6 weeks camping on Darnet Island in the Medway Estuary, and canoeing the inner and outer Estuary.

The book is illustrated with pinhole photographs and contains fold out, hand drawn maps of Darnet Island and the Medway Estuary that will be of use to canoeists, boaters and history buffs. The regular edition has a pale green cover and is hand stamped and numbered - no two books are the same.
