Description
A story of golf, friendship, and the meaning of irons.

Part travelogue, part meditation on the great game of golf, In Search of Burningbush is a beautifully written true life story of an unlikely friendship between two men with nothing in common except for an all consuming and abiding passion for the links. Michael is a successful young journalist: educated, travelled, and sophisticated. Don deals poker at a small casino, is well into middle age, and suffers from osteogenesis imperfecta, a brittle bone disease that's left him permanently crippled and eternally fragile.

In difficult moments in both of their personal lives, the two men partner each other for a two-week golfing excursion through the game's native Scotland. In search of the mystical course "Burningbush", made legendary by Michael Murphy's best-selling novel Golf in the Kingdom, (a book that has inspired legions of fanatical acolytes, Don included) Michael and Don embark on a self-actualising journey of the mind, body, and spirit.
