Every Day Above A New Horizon

by John Davison
 
Constrained by the pleasant chains of a job he enjoyed and a family he loves, John Davison prepared himself for his big break.

With the experience he'd built up from backpacking in the UK, he seized the moment and set off to recreate the journey undertaken by Robert Louis Stevenson across the Cévennes region of France in 1878.

Meeting kind, generous people

Overview

Constrained by the pleasant chains of a job he enjoyed and a family he loves, John Davison prepared himself for his big break.

With the experience he'd built up from backpacking in the UK, he seized the moment and set off to recreate the journey undertaken by Robert Louis Stevenson across the Cévennes region of France in 1878.

Meeting kind, generous people (interspersed with the occasional idiot whom even a saint would want to throttle), battling bad weather and equipment failure, never losing his sense of the absurd, John heads through the hills towards journey's end: the golden city down on the plain.

Meet the Author

John Davison was born and grew up in Wiltshire, England. School walking trips to Norway and Iceland (funded by a part-time job in a shop) started an enduring interest in travel, and John took a degree in geography at the University of London. It's an interest which has stayed with him ever since.

John's interest in travel, the outdoors, and social history, and his sense of humour, are reflected in his first book, "Every Day above a New Horizon", published by CreateSpace.

John is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and he lives in Essex.
