Grinduro Scotland

By Berne Broudy   |   Aug 11, 2017 August 11, 2017

It’s drizzling and a bag piper is piping—cliché but cute—as I roll through the steep, salty streets of Lamlash, on Scotland’s Isle of Arran, into a rooty, ferny slick single track, with 149 other bikers. Within the first quarter mile of the Grinduro Scotland, about half the… Read More

A Perch

By Lee Spencer   |   Aug 9, 2017 August 9, 2017

Dear Kaz and Irenna, Today you are 10-months old. This week, the last of winter’s snow left our garden, and the final crocus patch bloomed and closed just in time to escape your attempts to eat its purple petals. I spent our first winter together pulling you behind me in… Read More

Excerpted from chapter one of The Voyage of the Cormorant—new edition now available in paperback. A two-week supply of food, water, and gear in dry bags fit neatly in the boat, and I secured my surfboard in a padded bag over the top of my… Read More

Behind the Scenes of Fishpeople

By Donnie Hedden   |   Jul 17, 2017 July 17, 2017

Filmmaking. Some people follow the storyboard, some follow their gut. Keith Malloy? Ten parts gut, zero parts plan. Well, I take that back. He’s got a plan, it’s just hard to discern it behind that beard. Fortunately, he’s got some friends (and a legendary wife) who know how… Read More
