it was amazing

I am indebted to Alexander Watson. I would never have the courage or the capability to buy and restore a wooden yacht and take it on a journey from Texas to Ohio. However, through Alexander’s wonderful book, I am taken on such an adventure. The story is more than a description of what it’s like to restore and travel in a boat. River Queens provides the opportunity to see a glimpse of America in a new way and to experience the hospitality of the people who live and work along the river. Alexander captures the expedition, the relationship with his partner, and various encounters with vivid descriptions and sparkling dialog. As I was reading the book, there were times when I laughed out loud. And there were poignant moments that brought tears to my eyes. I highly recommend River Queens!
