9780071467322: In Search of Burningbush: A Story of Golf, Friendship, and the Meaning of Irons

A deeply moving true-life tale of courage, wisdom, and friendship between two men united by their love of golf

Critically acclaimed In Search of Burningbush is a beautifully written true-life story of an unlikely friendship between two men with nothing in common except a consuming and abiding passion for the links. Michael, a successful young journalist, and Don, a middle-aged card dealer with brittle-bone disease, go to Scotland in search of the mystical course “Burningbush.” As Don struggles with his physical challenges, Michael struggles to keep the game--and life--in perspective.
