Publisher's information 2010

(A story of the author's experiences, not a route guide).

Inspired by the great explorers from Captain Scott and Captain Cook to Mary Kingsley and Marco Polo, Andy Owens plans an expedition along Yorkshire's River Aire - a soft option to the wild and dangerous Congo, Nile, Ganges and Amazon.

Yet despite the absence of cannibals and crocodiles, he encounters a series of more urbane 'dangers' such as psychotic motorists, homicidal livestock, sarcastic bus drivers, eccentric birdwatchers, teenagers who throw stones at you in a strange local custom, and - perhaps most alarming of all - folk who get suspicious just because you don't have a local accent.
