Local author John Tytler Thomson will be giving an illustrated talk about his book ‘Drinking the Wind’ at the Inglis Memorial Hall on Saturday, March 23.
This is an extraordinary and inspiring version of his recovery from a sudden and debilitating illness and his progression to become a successful endurance rider.
The book is about courage, determination and the tough, intense, often unforgiving conditioning required to prepare a horse and rider for the extremes of endurance.
It is a remarkable account of the formidable bond forged between the rider and his pure bred Arabian horse and their combined battle for the first Trans Scotland 200-mile endurance ride from Scurdie Ness Lighthouse to Ardnamurchan Point.
This talk will appeal to everybody - book lovers; horse lovers; those who have battled against illness; lovers of the Scottish countryside.
Admission is free and tea, coffee, soft drinks and home baking will be available.
The event is being hosted by the Edzell Library Action Group.
