Synopsis: Bring your appetite. Bring gifts for the king of the Naso tribe.Join Darrin DuFord as he hikes, bribes, and barters his way across Panama, a perennially overlooked filament of the tropics where DuFord encounters a startling richness of cultures between the nation’s two coastlines. Sitting down with everyone from scientists to town barflies, DuFord samples such local delicacies as fermented corn homebrew and slow-barbecued jungle rodent while, at every turn, taking the more vernacular--and much more enriching--options of transportation. Whether jostling in the back of a pickup truck serving as the local bus or uncovering how the country is tackling its ecological quandaries, DuFord opens a window into the little-known day to day struggles and pleasures of the Panamanian people. Is There a Hole in the Boat? reveals a Panama that is not simply a place to watch bloated cruise ships edge along the walls of the Canal. It’s a land where the machete can slash through just about anything--except the nation'’s spirit. Is There a Hole in the Boat? won a silver medal in the 2007 Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Awards.

Review: "...a true, up close and personal picture of another world -- one full of vivacious human spirit, mouth-watering odors and vibrant color." -- Sue Vogan, BookPleasures

DuFord introduces us to the people of Panama, and he does it hilariously and most perceptively. -- The Panama News, August 20 - September 2, 2006
