Noone had sailed a narrowboat in the US before, for reasons that became clear during the 1,150-mile voyage of the Phyllis May– including thirty-mile sea crossings, waves, storms, fog, tornadoes, hurricanes, savage fish, poison algae, killer spiders and starving alligators.
But the real danger came from the Good Ole Boys and Girls of the Deep South who were waiting along the shore. Captains and Colonels, bums and heroes, fishermen and plantation owners, weathergirls and gongoozlers and beautiful spies, dancing dicks and the walking dead – all wanting to meet the Brits on the painted boat and their narrow dog and take them home and party them to death.
The beautiful eastern coasts of the US – the Carolinas, Charleston, Savannah, the wilds of Georgia and Florida – are unknown to many, and few have experienced the countryside and the people as closely as the crew of the Phyllis May. This is America with a smile on its face and an arm around your shoulder…
Beautifully written, lovingly observed and very funny, Narrow Dog to Indian River takes you on a sometimes dangerous, always entertaining voyage through a wonderland but a few steps off the track.
