Publisher's Description

In this exciting and beautiful spiritual evocation of Iona, we find inspiring photography, brand new poems, tales recounting legends, local stories and Celtic passages from Adamnan – but there is much more to this wonderful book than a simple description of its elements can capture. It is a work of poetic, spiritual beauty.

Evoking the intricacies of the island’s spiritual web, the book finds half-explored coves and caves, explores the names of certain seldom-visited glens and headlands and tells people who thought they knew everything about Iona things of which they had no knowledge.

Author Bio

Editorial Reviews

‘…Steven has a talent for capturing the startling, original image . . . he is a fine, fine poet’
‘this poet is a worthy successor to such greats as George Mackay Brown, Iain Crichton Smith and Norman MacCaig … he celebrates Scotland’s past and present without the least trace of sentimentality’
‘Kenneth Steven has a ready sensitivity to the beauty of small moments.’
