Floating Through France: Life Between Locks on the Canal Du Midi Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Revealing a rural side of France, the essays in this collection explore the areas surrounding the picturesque Canal du Midi. Featuring contributions from Linda Watanabe McFerrin, Larry Habegger, Joanna Biggar, and others, "Floating Through France" is perfect for those traveling to France or those who just want to feel like they're there.

Synopsis:

Many tourists' trips to France are dominated by that country's cosmopolitan capital; Floating Through France reveals a rural side of France that is seen less often, but is just as compelling as Paris's urban excitement. The essays in this collection explore the areas surrounding the unique, picturesque Canal du Midi. The oldest functioning canal in Europe, the Canal du Midi started out as a shortcut for bustling commerce in the 17th century and is now a United Nations World Heritage site and one of the most beautiful, evocative features of the French countryside. Featuring essays from notables such as Linda Watanabe McFerrin, Larry Habegger, and Joanna Biggar, as well as up-and-comers, and poetry and photo-sketches, Floating Through France is perfect for those traveling to France or those who just want to feel like they're there.
