9780552775076: Blue River, Black Sea

The Danube is Europe's Amazon. It flows through more countries than any other river on Earth—from the Black Forest in Germany to Europe's farthest fringes, where it joins the Black Sea in Romania. Andrew Eames' journey along its length brings us face to face with the continent's bloodiest history and its most pressing issues of race and identity. As he travels—by bicycle, horse, boat, and on foot—Eames finds himself seeking a bed for the night with minor royalty, hitching a ride on a Serbian barge captained by a man called Attila, and getting up close and personal with a bull in rural Romania. He meets would-be kings and walks with gypsies, and finally rows his way beyond the borders of Europe entirely.

About the Author:

Andrew Eames has been writing travel and general interest features for newspapers for nearly a decade, including the Telegraph and the Times. He is the author of The 8.55 to Baghdad, Benn's London, Crossing the Shadow Line, and Four Scottish Journeys.

Review:

"Eames has the adventurousness and pleasantly self-deprecating sense of humour that makes a good travel writer. The book's hero is the Danube itself. Few will forget Eames's lament for the demise of the river in the modern era."
— Financial Times
