Bill Arnott is the bestselling author of Gone Viking: A Travel Saga, Gone Viking II: Beyond Boundaries, A Season on Vancouver Island, and Gone Viking III: The Holy Grail (Fall 2023). He's been awarded by the Whistler Independent Book Awards, ABF International Book Awards, Firebird Book Awards, The Miramichi Reader's Very Best Book Award for nonfiction, and for his expeditions has been granted a Fellowship at London's Royal Geographical Society. When not trekking the globe with a small pack, weatherproof journal and laughably outdated camera phone, or showing off cooking skills as a culinary school dropout, Bill can be found on Canada's west coast, making music and friends.

Reviews

Praise for Gone Viking II: Beyond Boundaries: "A perfect book for the armchair explorer. A true delight from a talented travel writer." --John MacFarlane, author of Around the World in a Dugout Canoe


"Gone Viking II
is a tale so infused with adrenaline-charged exhilaration, it will
leave the reader breathless. This book of travels is fuelled by action,
humour and unbridled enthusiasm." --Edythe Anstey Hanen, author of Nine Birds Singing


"Bill is a first-rate storyteller, and supremely funny. You won't want to travel with anyone else." --Lorette C. Luzajic, editor of The Ekphrastic Review


"An engaging, deliciously irreverent and encompassing read." --Barbara Black, author of Music from a Strange Planet


"A
multi-sensory trip with laugh-aloud moments and the soulful variety of
insights and observations gained only from the road. A wholehearted
delight!" --Linda Quennec, author of ABF Winner, Fishing for Birds


"Arnott's
latest saga transports us to other worlds with typical finesse,
blending the philosophical, historical and geological with healthy doses
of humour." --Patricia Sandberg, award-winning author of Sun Dogs and Yellowcake


"Bill
writes like a poet and dares like an adventurer: paddling white water,
climbing mountains and enduring torrential rains and rough seas, and his
ability to capture characters is uncanny." --Jeanne Ainslie, author of Caribbean Moon


"In Gone Viking II, Bill Arnott takes the reader on an armchair odyssey literally across the map." --Kate Bird, author of Vancouver in the Seventies


"Gone Viking II
is brimming with spirited characters, salty air, tidbits of trivia and a
dose of mischief. Packed with red sand, shark sightings, volcanic
eruptions and pub recommendations, Arnott's writing is so vivid you'll
feel like a stowaway in his backpack." --Anna Byrne, author of Seven Year Summer
