NARROW DOG TO CARCASSONNE NARROW DOG TO CARCASSONNE
Ref W040

Currently number 10 in the bestsellers list

As widely reported on radio & television a journey on a narrow boat across the English channel and through the French waterways.

Terry and Monica Darlington, both pensioners, decided to sail their canal narrow boat 'Phyllis May' across the English Channel and through Belgium and France to the Mediterranean, with their whippet Jim. They took advice from experts, who told them they would lose their boat and their lives (and indeed their whippet Jim).

'Narrow Dog to Carcassonne' is a true story of high adventure as experienced by two innocents and a reluctant dog. On board the 'Phyllis May' you chase rabbits in Oxfordshire, moor among the bankers in the City, Dive through six-foot waves in the Channel, live among history in Flanders, battle through Belgium, drift across Champagne, throw a rope around the Eiffel Tower, struggle with hostile life-forms in Burgundy, floats down the Saone from vineyards to vineyard, are swept from Lyon to Avignon by the terrible Rhone, and fight for your life on an inland sea among the flamingos of the Carmague.

Storms, hangovers, breakdowns, vandals, Dicks, trolls, aliens, gongoozlers, killer fish and the walking dead stand between the intrepid crew and their goal - many-towered Carcassonne.

SLOW BOAT THROUGH FRANCE SLOW BOAT THROUGH FRANCE
Ref A127H

Almost 8000 km of canal and river navigations penetrate the astonishingly varied and beautiful French countryside. Hugh McKnight was one of the pioneers of boating in France in the late 1960s, but it was not until 1983 that he became co-owner of 'Avonbay', a 37 ft steel motor cruiser, admirably suited to the waterways network. In that this richly illustrated travelogue, he writes of the careful advance planning necessary before crossing from the Thames to Calais and his subsequent adventures from the north to Alsace, into Switzerland and Belgium and through the heart of Burgundy to the sun-drenched Canal du Midi.

Few writers know and love the French waterways better than Hugh McKnight. "Slow boat through France" tells of the humorous, exciting and always enjoyable encounters, as he cruises and eats his way through one of Europe's most popular holiday destinations. This is the perfect handbook for anyone wishing to follow in 'Avonbay's' wake.
