Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At once an adventure story and an instructional guidebook on how to build a flat-bottom boat, this unique work embodies the excitement of boating life. In a journey fit for Huck Finn, a group of friends trek down the Missouri River on nothing more than a homemade skiff where they encounter colorful locals, discover secluded river islands, and are witness to sublime sunsets and harrowing storms. Accompanying the narrative are schematics and instructions that provide boaters and do-it-yourselfers with the details on how to build a flat-bottom boat and motor from scratch. A book that teaches those interested in boatbuilding and real-life explorers how best to fulfill their dreams of sailing on a hand-built, homemade vessel, this work shows how to enjoy the great outdoors with a unique sense of accomplishment.
