David Leach: New Book

David Leach (writing) launches his first book this month, entitled Fatal Tide: When the Race of a Lifetime Goes Wrong. The creative non-fiction novel explores the causes and consequences of a fatal kayaking accident on the Bay of Fundy, the rise of extreme sports and reality TV, the psychology of risk-taking in the outdoors and other topics. Despite its Maritimes focus, there are UVic connections: Dr John Hayward, professor emeritus in biology and for years one of the leading researchers into hypothermia, appears in the book, as his work helped Leach crack the final mystery of exactly how and why the young man died.
