We had a fantastically well supported launch event in the National Park Visitor Centre. A huge thanks to all who attended and helped to make the occasion such a success.

We did not anticipate the level of interest and support, so sincere apologies to all who were unable to get a copy of the book on the night. See here for current availability.
Special thanks to Pat Gallagher for sharing his inspiring thoughts and insights on the book.
