This charming book sails away from the typical photographic tours found in most houseboat books, focusing instead on the stories of the enchanting people who dwell by the docks. Undoubtedly, Seattle's Lake Union is a stunningly beautiful area. But it is the marvelous mishmash of freshwater folks and the unique community they create that makes living off-land so intriguing.

About the Author:

Jeri Callahan was meant to reside with the tides. Before becoming a passionate houseboater, she left her home town of Dayton, Ohio for Seattle when she married a web-footed native, raised three children in the suburbs, and finally found her home between the docks and the waves. Her diverse portfolio of writing includes Where does Truth Lie? , an epistemology paper published in the College of William and Mary s academic journal, Over the Teacups , a daily social column in the Dayton Journal Herald, where she replaced Erma Bombeck, and news releases from the PR Department of the University of Washington Health Sciences Center. Callahan has also been published in the Seattle Times, The Seattle Post-Intellegencer, The Highline Times, and Vallarta Today. Now this former teacher resumes her early writing career to share the stories of the medley of folks who choose to live off-land.

Review:

I was fascinated by the glimpse of life in a floating home; there's much I never thought about. ----George Teusch, Gift shop book buyer

With an immediately appealing and readable writing style, Jeri succinctly conveys both anecdotal and informative material about life afloat. ----John Purcell, Houseboater

Jeri's done everything right: the evocative cover, the size and weight of her book, and the readable type. --Silvia Hamel, semi-retired librarian
