Detailed Product Description
London, 298 pp. Paperback, Fine condition. Appears unused. 

Told with Newby's typical humor and attention to detail, this is a classic of the genre and a window into an enchanting piece of history. On his forty-forth birthday, Eric Newby sets out on an incredible journey to travel the 1,200-mile length of India's holy river. In a misguided attempt to keep him out of trouble, Wanda, his wife and life-long travel companion, is to be his fellow boatwoman.

Their plan is to begin in the great plain of Hardwar and finish in the Bay of Bengal, but the journey almost immediately becomes more treacherous than either had imagined - running aground sixty-three times in the first six days. Traveling in a variety of unstable boats, as well as by rail, bus and bullock cart, and resting at sandbanks and remote villages, the Newbys encounter engaging characters and glorious mishaps.
