he original story reprinted, with additional chapters telling of a new paddling adventure.
After heading home from overseas, Newcastle-born writer and journalist Scott Bevan paddled the Hunter River in 2011 to reconnect with who he was and where he was from.
That journey in a kayak led to the acclaimed book, The Hunter.
A decade on, Scott has returned to the river to paddle it again.
The account of this new journey reflects on changes in the lives of those Scott met 10 years earlier, in the life of the river and the region, and in the author's own life. But, above all, this journey is a celebration of life.
Return to The Hunter brings the full original story back into print but also takes the reader on a new adventure.
So join Scott as he kayaks along this great Australian river once more.
