"Campbell’s collection of kayaking essays are vintage Northwest tales."
Carolyn Price
Publisher, Sports Etc. Magazine

"The thing I like most about this book is that it takes you there by armchair, and then, in the appendix, tells you how to get there yourself. While reading, I could feel the paddle in my hands."

"What works for me is the fact that 'Around the Rock' is more than just a point to point travel log. Campbell brings to the reader a wonderful use of language and wordsmithing ability...his thoughts and feelings are richly detailed throughout, making this story a real joy"
Chris Duff
Author, On Celtic Tides and Southern Exposure

"Campbell's one-man tour of the wild coasts of Newfoundland is a remarkable journey, both physically and mentally. His narrative is a tale that is equal parts personal endurance and poetic reflection. Those who know the island will recognize the place they love, and those who don't will wonder why they have never made the journey."
Bob Hallett
Great Big Sea

"A colorful yarn that draws you into a land filled with rich history. Campbell set out to experience the coastal waters of Newfoundland and ended up on a personal voyage of discovery."
