Synopsis

"Rowland Evans portrays, with bardic skill, the journey into meaning that we all face. The contemplative steps of the inner journey weave a rich tapestry around a fascinating travelogue." (Gail Dixon: Director, Nations Trust). It is one man's journey, in his 70th year, to the far reaches of China and Tibet, to rediscover his purpose. Rowland Evans has led a truly remarkable life, but his seventieth year saw his driven, purposeful walk brought to an abrupt halt amidst the concerns and attitudes of the world to those "of a certain age". In this lyrical yet hard-hitting book, Rowland digs deep to face the hard questions: was this truly a time to stop, to retire, to douse the flame? Or was it simply a sea change, a new opportunity, a new doorway? The backdrop to his intense journey includes fabulous glimpses of China and Tibet, as well as Wales, and their own peoples and characters. "My Sea is Wide", with its beautiful literary prose, challenges, enthralls, entertains, teaches, enlightens, and opens new worlds and new possibilities to the reader's imagination. "A remarkable book which I would urge you to read and ponder. It is totally inspiring - like Rowland himself".

(John Edwards M Ed; BA (Hons): Historian, Lecturer, Broadcaster, Editor).
