NEW!!! Finding Our Sea-Legs: Ethics, Experience and the Ocean of Stories (2nd Revised Edition) by Will Buckingham

At Wind&Bones we care above all else about stories and ethics. So we are delighted to be launching Wind&Bones Books with our very first publication, the newly reissued 10th anniversary second edition of Will Buckingham’s Finding Our Sea-Legs: Ethics, Experience and the Ocean of Stories. First published in 2009 by Kingston University Press, the book has continued to intrigue readers with its stories of sea-voyagers, palmwine-drunk gods, philosophers, and unexpectedly wise woodpeckers.
