A collection of essays & photos by William A. Young, linking travel, Celtic mythology, and some associated odds-and-ends
The Feral Words site is a place for telling some of the stories I’ve picked up along the way. I set about the business of having adventures a number of years ago, with the intention of eventually collating them into books and, hopefully, making a living therefrom; earlier incarnations of this site were built with that end in mind. The economics of this idea have, however, proven questionable; in an era when the average author in the UK makes £4000 a year, the considerable time and effort required in shaping a book represents a strikingly poor return on investment. Rather than letting all the things I’ve seen and learned go to waste, however, I’ve decided to publish them here instead, to inspire some journeys, connect with some like-minded people, and pass on some tales worth remembering. There’s more value in an adventure, after all, than that which can be counted in money.
I hope very much that you enjoy it.
