In White River Jamie Whittle, traveller and environmental lawyer, returns to his origins by the River Findhorn in Morayshire to make the journey from its mouth to its source on foot, and to return again by canoe. It is familiar ground, but made new after his many travels about the world. From the interaction of traveller and river there arises a new lyricism that speaks of energy, dangers, wild places, of bounty taken from hard landscapes, of beauty and risk.
Jamie Whittle is an environmental lawyer and traveller. He was educated in Scotland, England and America where he is a Morehead Scholar out of the University of North Carolina. He now lives close to the River Findhorn with his wife, Samira, and their children.
