9780915728008: Discovering England from One Inch above the Thames

Join American adventurer Jim Payne as he paddles down the Thames River, dodging attacking swans, camping in ancient ruins, and engaging the seriously funny people who populate England. Jim has a knack for delving behind the scenes, and before you know it, you're following along on a witty, engrossing tour of many aspects of English life, including sports, drama, bell-ringing, law, food, immigration, and religion, as well as deeper mysteries like England s attachment to tradition, and the curious quaintness of its streets, buildings and computers! You never know what's coming next in this unusual voyage because neither does Jim!
