See note in the side-bar if you have any issues playing Audiobooks. The Raven Audiobook is not linked to the text based eBook in any way… some people think they go together, but they are separate digital entities that are stored in different locations on the internet. You should always be able to find the latest versions here.
Raven eBook by Alun Hughes
The adventures of Piran, an unusually inquisitive young Raven who is a talented flier, full of desire and sense of wonder. He is driven to search for new experiences and new horizons, to explore his world to the full and to seek the ‘truth’
This is an allegorical tale aimed primarily at young readers, showing that true happiness comes from within, and that it is only through searching and seeking the truth that happiness and place come together to find meaning
Ravens are astute birds; very intelligent, inquisitive and communicative. They are the largest in size of the Crow family and so the strongest, but what makes them really different from other Crows is that they can reason. They can make informed decisions. They have a complicated language, and can even learn the languages of other birds. At least Piran, our adventurous youngster can - but he is not born yet.
Raven is a standard format ePub ebook. It's full of photos so it's quite a big download @ 432mb

Clawdd Offa / Offa's Dyke
Anne and I are looking forward to walking the trail from south to north over 2 weeks, sometime in 2022. As part of the prep I'm having some fun collating various resources and have some files here to download for anyone interested.
Download .GPX File This is a reasonably accurate track of the whole 284km of the Offa's Dyke Long Distance walk and I've added waypoints for all of the 12 Passport Stamping Locations as accurately as possible using Google Street View.
Download .epub This is an ePub description of the Passport System. An edit of a pdf provided by the Offa's Dyke Association. I've added a little bit of history about the lovely enamelled badges from the past.
