Long time Kimberley resident and school principal Don Davies spent his retirement hiking, biking and exploring both locally and abroad. He cycled from New York to Alaska, and pedaled his way around Australia’s coast—all 16,000 kilometres of it. Struck with incurable bone and marrow cancer, Davies has slowed down, but not by much. He recounts his life in of adventures in his latest memoir ‘Backpacks and Saddlebags,’ reminding all of us to be kind to the wilderness and each other.
